29-year-old male of Madison, WI


Madison Police responded to 53 East Towne Mall on 12/29/2011, at approximately 4:12 pm reference a physical fight in progress. Officers determined that the suspect, later identified as Daviette Whitney Dykinga, attacked the loss prevention officer from Boston Store in her attempt to get away with approximately $150 worth of stolen merchandise.

When Dykinga was approached about the stolen bake ware and cologne she had concealed, she became violent and was reported to have punched the 29-year-old victim so many times, that he was forced out to the parking lot. The victim grabbed the shirt of Dykinga to keep her from both harming him and getting away, and she ended up topless! Having nothing but her underclothes on, that still did not stop Dykinga from fleeing the scene, and she was located a few blocks away by police on Lien Road. Dykinga immediately stated to police, “I shouldn’t have done this – why couldn’t I get away”. Multiple businesses, from Banana Republic to Dicks Sporting Goods, were among the many stores that Dykinga had paid a visit to (merchandise located from those establishments). She was conveyed to the Dane County Jail on charges above.
