Victim(s)Female, age 22, Madison

DetailsA young woman was on the verge of tears, and was feeling very embarrassed, as she explained to police how a bar patron grabbed her buttocks and then battered her boyfriend after he confronted the suspect Saturday night inside a University Ave. bar. "Felt like a power thing," she told an officer. "Men in large groups like to feel powerful and it felt as though he was showing off," she said. Her boyfriend was taken to a hospital with facial injuries, abrasions, contusions and a very sore and swollen neck. He was attacked after asking the suspect to apologize, saying what he had done was disrespectful. The suspect responded by grabbing the male victim by the neck and repeatedly punching him. Bouncers quickly intervened, with MPD officers on the scene shortly thereafter. At the hospital, the injured man explained that his girlfriend is a very modest person and he became very upset after the unwanted touching because he knew this would be very emotionally upsetting to her. The suspect was arrested on several tentative charges.
