MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- Madison police said a 72-year-old man was attacked in his own apartment by a stranger who made off with his TV.

Police said it happened on Saturday night just before 6 p.m. in the 2500 block of Calypso Road.

The victim said he could hear someone outside his apartment door, so he opened the door by a few inches.

That's when police said a stranger, with a hood pulled over his head, pushed his way into the victim's apartment, knocking him to the ground. The suspect choked the victim before making off with his large flat-screen TV.
