The Madison Police Department is looking for a suspect involved in a sexual assault and battery incident that occurred on the 600 block of University Avenue Saturday evening.

The suspect allegedly aggressively grabbed the behind of a 20-year-old Madison woman prompting a 26-year-old Chicago man to approach the suspect about his action. The suspect then sucker punched the male victim, causing his head to smash against the ground. The male suspect was taken to a local hospital for facial injuries and damaged teeth.

If arrested, the suspect will be charged with fourth degree sexual assault and substantial battery.

UW-Madison students received notification of the incident via email after MPD contacted UWPD.
