Man breaks into North Butler Street residence

A 27-year-old Madison man scared away an intruder who climbed through the window of the victim’s North Butler Street apartment early Wednesday morning, according to a police report.

The report says noises coming from his roommate’s bedroom awoke the victim at approximately 4:16 a.m. However, the victim knew his roommate was not in the apartment, so he went to check out the disturbance.

The intruder “quickly jumped through a window and fled” upon the victim entering the room, Madison Police Department spokesperson Joel DeSpain said in the report.

An officer who responded to the scene found a cinder block set below the window, which the screen had been taken out of, according to the report. The victim seemingly did not have time to steal anything.
