Robbers take Madison man's cell phone

Posted Friday, April 25, 2014 --- 11:55 a.m.

Madison Police are investigating after a pair of robbers stole a man's cell phone Thursday morning.

The 18-year-old victim was walking on Ash St. around 11:15 a.m. when a teen asked to borrow the phone. The victim loaned him the phone, but the teen refused to give it back.

When the victim pressed for the phone some more, another person who was with the teen reached into a book bag and pulled out an object. The victim believed it was a gun, though it was never taken out of the bag. He backed off.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 266-6014.
