Miscellaneous Sex Offense

Incident Date

08/01/2018 - 10:20 PM


500 block State St.


Marvin Prince, age 53, Madison
Suspect was arrested for fourth degree sexual assault, disorderly conduct and resisting/obstructing.


Female, age 27, Madison


A downtown resident was walking her dog on State Street last night when a man began to follow her. He "kind of cornered (me) into a tree," she would later tell a responding officer. The 27-year-old turned away from the man and then felt and heard a loud slap on her buttocks. She told an officer she was "mortified, shocked, and disturbed." Police arrived and arrested the suspect, who initially tried to use a fake name.

The victim did not see what the suspect used to contact her, but he was carrying a plastic bag containing a sub sandwich, and it's believed that is what he used to slap her. He told officers it was more of a bump, and they were wasting their time investigating the case, saying "this stuff happens on the street."
