500 W. Johnson Street


Adrian Isaac Marroquin, 24-year-old male of Madison, WI
CHARGES: Strong Armed Robbery


22-year-old female of Madison, WI


A Madison Police Officer was on routine patrol in the West Johnson Street area near North Bassett Street, looking for any disturbances or problems.  He stopped at a facing red signal when he noticed a male subject rip the purse out of the hand of an unsuspecting female, and pushed her to the ground.  The surprised officer noted the suspect, later identified as Adrian Marroquin, began to run right towards his police squad car.  The officer immediately exited his squad, and subdued Marroquin up against a construction fence.  Marroquin was still in possession of the victim's black designer purse at that time.  Marroquin was taken into custody, and offered the arresting officer an excuse of his actions that was less than believable.  The victim stated she had recently moved to Madison from the Milwaukee area, and she was extremely thankful that an officer was there.
