Man punched in face after defending female friend

A Madison man received treatment for a possible broken nose and jaw after he engaged in a fight with a man who rudely commented on his female friend’s weight Sunday morning.

The 23-year-old woman said her friend and the suspect were fighting on the 400 block of West Main Street when the suspect punched the woman’s friend several times in the face, leaving him with a possible broken nose and jaw, according to Madison Police Department spokesperson Joel DeSpain.

According to the report, the woman said it did not appear her friend made any contact with the suspect who punched him.

The man who threw the punches walked off with a friend holding a case of beer, according to DeSpain.

The victim was treated for head injuries at a local hospital.
