UpdateLocating and arresting a suspect in this case was a top priority for the MPD.
Detectives said because the victim called immediately and provided a good description of the suspect, officers were able to quickly start pulling and reviewing surveillance video from a host of downtown cameras. A person of interest was found on some video clips. Detectives and Central District Community Police Team members worked undercover, looking for this person while also seeking additional information that might lead to his identification. Several citizens provided valuable leads. The totality of the effort paid off Saturday when detectives were able to put a name with the person in the surveillance images. The suspect was contacted and agreed to meet with them. That meeting ended with Mr. Marcus T. Boone, age 27, Madison, being arrested and tentatively charged with First Degree Sexual Assault. Additional details regarding the investigation will be contained in a forthcoming criminal complaint, and will not be released at this time.
