An 18-year-old, who was visiting Madison from out of town, needed stitches to close a head cut early Saturday morning. The teen told police he got into an argument with a man he met downtown, and that the man ended up stealing the victim's fanny pack, containing cash. The teen said he chased after the man, but ran into a pole, causing the head injury. A MPD officer saw the injured teen sitting in a car. The victim was bleeding profusely. He initially did not want medical help, but the officer encouraged him to get to a hospital.
