A 19-year-old Madison man was mugged while walking in the 2100 block of Fisher St. Sunday evening.
The victim said a robber came up from behind, struck him in the head, and stole his Play Station Vita portable electronic device, valued at $265.
The teen said he had been playing with it while on a bus ride to the South Transfer Point. He believes the thug was also a passenger, and said the stranger had asked him what the device was while they were traveling.
He said the mugger was with two accomplices, and that all fled on foot following the strong-armed robbery.
