Man allegedly assaults woman on East Washington

A man allegedly sexually assaulted a Madison woman on the 4500 block of East Washington Avenue early Sunday.

While at a downtown bar, a 29-year-old woman met an African American man between 30 and 39 years old who said he was selling clothes and purses out of his SUV, according to Madison Police Department spokesperson Joel DeSpain.

According to police, she agreed to meet him in a parking lot on the 4500 block of East Washington Avenue because she was interested in his merchandise.

After they entered his car at approximately 4:25 a.m., the man allegedly sexually assaulted her, according to DeSpain.

The woman said she “screamed, kicked the man and was able to get out,” according to the report.

DeSpain said she then returned to her own car and drove to a friend’s house where she called the police.
