1600 block Wright St


Late last night, a 32-year-old woman told police she was at her home in the 1600 block of Wright St when she heard a commotion outside.  She looked out the window and saw a man, that she did not recognize, pacing on the sidewalk and talking on a phone, yelling "Imma shoot this expletive".  Shortly after, he starts kicking her front door, holding in both hands, what appeared to be a gun.  She ran upstairs to protect her three children while calling 911.
Officers quickly arrived after 911 is called, but the man had already left the area.  Officers canvassed the area and provided extra patrol throughout the evening to the neighborhood. 
The woman does not know the man nor could see his face, and described him as medium-build wearing a light gray-colored sweatshirt and light-colored pants with a hoodie covering his face.
If you have any information about this incident, please contact Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 266-6014, or, on the web at p3tips.com
