The Madison Police Department is investigating an armed robbery that occurred at Goodman Park during the late evening hours on August 20, 2013.  The victim reported that around 11:30 PM, he was near the softball fields in the park when the suspect approached him and demanded his belongings.  When the victim refused, the subject attacked him with a broken beer bottle.  The suspect then took the victim's yellow Mongoose bicycle with attached trailer and headed southbound into adjacent Quann Park.  There was some delay in reporting as the victim did not have a phone, but he would eventually find the help of an uninvolved citizen who called 911.

The victim sustained non-life threatening injuries and was treated at an area hospital.  The suspect remains at large.  Information obtained during the investigation is that the suspect is homeless and he may frequent the downtown and south side areas of Madison. 

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the Madison Police.  Tipsters can call the Madison Area Crimestoppers at (608) 266-6014.
