MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A man is now behind bars for beating and robbing a 39-year-old Chicago woman in downtown Madison Wednesday night.

The woman told Madison police that she met the male suspect and socialized. They then walked into an alleyway – when the man began attacking the woman and robbing her of her cash and cell phone.

The suspect was later arrested for a different incident. Madison police say they will refer tentative charges to the District Attorney. Surveillance camera images were useful in catching the suspect, police said.
