Yesterday, shortly after noon, Phillip Fung Li, age 25, pointed a "Glock-Style" gun at a 28-year-old victim in the 100 block of S Bassett St.  The victim immediately grabbed the gun and a struggle ensued with Li then pulling out a knife, cutting the victim (minor cut).  Li also pepper-sprayed the victim before fleeing in his car.
A witness was able to get the license plate and officers were able to setup near the registered address, with Li arriving in his car a short while later and taken into custody.
The investigation revealed the original dispute was over money and the "Glock-Style" gun was a BB Gun.  Li was booked into the Dane County Jail on the following tentative charges:
  • 2nd Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety
