500 block University Ave.


Male, age 21, Madison


A 21-year old man contacted the MPD Monday night wanting to report a strong-armed robbery that had happened early Sunday morning, around 1:00 a.m. He said he was in the hallway of a University Avenue apartment building, just outside of an apartment where a party was taking place. He said three men approached, and one punched him. He went to the floor as attackers demanded money. He gave them none, but they were able to flee with his cell phone. It had fallen from his pocket during the assault. An officer told the victim about the importance of reporting crimes immediately as that provides police with a much better chance of catching lawbreakers.
