State Street

Male, age 51, Port Huron, MI


A Michigan man, in Madison on business, was kicked in the head on State St. early this morning while engaged in a conversation about religion and evolution. The victim said he was having good dialogue with a couple of older men when a young man joined the debate. He became engaged at some point, pushed the victim, and then kicked him in the head. The visitor suffered a black eye. An area homeless man, who had been part of the conversation - when it was cordial - helped the victim back to his hotel so police could be called. The witness also provided an officer with valuable information regarding the attack.
