Madison man loses cell phone in daytime robbery

An 18-year-old Madison man lost his cell phone to a teen suspect in a theft scheme Thursday morning.

The victim told Madison police he was walking down Ash Street at approximately 11:15 a.m. when the suspect approached him. The teen told the victim he needed to borrow a cell phone to “call his mother,” according to Public Information Officer Joel DeSpain in an incident report.

When the victim attempted to retrieve his phone from the suspect, a second teenage suspect interfered. The Madison man told police the other suspect reached into a backpack and pulled out what he believed was a gun. The victim decided not to pursue his phone any further and backed away from the two teenage suspects.

Madison police encourage citizens to call the Madison Area Crime Stoppers hotline at (608)-266-6014 with any information on the suspects.

Descriptions of the suspects were not provided.
