Details

A 22-year old Madison man was punched by two men during an attempted robbery on Moorland Rd. Wednesday night. The victim said he had gone to the basement of an apartment building with the intention of buying electronics from a man he had never met. A third party had put the two together. The victim took a friend with him, and the "seller" arrived with another man and a woman. The deal never took place, as the "seller" and his male accomplice battered the victim while trying to take his money. A resident heard the commotion and called police. The would-be robbers and their female friend fled.
