On December 10, 2019 at approximately 6:36pm, Madison Police Officers were dispatched to the 1500 block of Troy Drive for an open line 911 call with two people, a male and a female, arguing about keys in the background. As officers were responding, police received a call from the Kwik Trip advising that a male was hitting a female outside. The first officer on scene located an injured female outside of an apartment building and holding a knife. She complied with officers commands, dropped the knife, and was detained. While investigating, officers found that her injuries were a result of a domestic disturbance and battery, some of which occurred inside a nearby apartment. The domestic battery involved personal weapons (hands, feet, fists) and also a knife.

Officers located an intoxicated male inside the apartment and find that he has a stab wound to the shoulder area. He in turn is also detained. The evidence indicates that the male violently assaulted the female after the two began to argue over keys. While on top of the female, she accessed a knife, stabbed him, and then fled from the apartment; going outside where the first responding officer contacted her. The male was taken to a local hospital, received treatment, and was medically cleared. He was then arrested and transported to the Dane County Jail on numerous domestic abuse related charges.

This domestic battery investigation is ongoing. If anyone has any information regarding this or witnessed it, please contact the Madison Police Department or the Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014.
