Madison Police say a man was beaten early Sunday morning near campus.
The 23-year-old victim called officers around 10:00 a.m. that day to report the battery, which he says happened hours earlier.
The man says he was intoxicated and walking home from downtown after bar time. He got into a confrontation with several men in the 900 block of Spring St.
He says they punched him in the head several times. At first he thought he was robbed of his cell phone, but later found it in his pocket.
