23 West Towne Mall


Capriest Franklin, 18-year-old male of Madison, WI
CHARGES: Robbery, Disorderly Conduct and Probation Violation


19-year-old female of Madison, WI


Madison Police responded to the area of West Towne Mall, reference a physical assault and robbery of a female, on 10/18/2013, at 4:32pm.  A witness observed a male subject, later identified as Capriest Franklin, trying to choke a 19-year-old female, and she got extremely concerned that the suspect was brazen enough to continue grabbing the struggling victim in a nearby parking lot. 

Officers arrived, noted the suspect left the mall area, but not before he allegedly snatched the purse of the victim and fled on foot.  Officers determined that Franklin and the victim did have previous ties to one another, and the focus of this entire ordeal was due to Franklin demanding money from the unwilling victim.  Officers took Franklin into custody on 10/24/2013 shortly after 11am for probable cause on charges listed above.
