Incident Report from Madison Police Department:
Early Sunday morning, shortly after 2:00 a.m., a Madison Police officer was dispatched to a downtown residence to take a report from a battery victim.
A 21-year old man said he was outside in the 400 block of West Gorham Street, around 1:15 a.m., when a guy approached and struck up a conversation.
The stranger ended up asking the victim for his wallet. The victim refused to turn it over and was punched in the face. The blow knocked him down.
He says the robber then bent over him, and he responded by swiftly kicking the would-be thief. He believes his foot connected with either the criminal’s face or chest. The perpetrator moved quickly away, and was last seen westbound on University Avenue.
Perpetrator is described as a male, white, late 20's to early 30's, 5'10" to 6' tall, 215 to 225 pounds, short brown hair, wearing a white hooded jacket, blue jeans, and white shoes.
Male, age 21, Madison
Victim was punched in the face.
