Suspect breaks student's jaw on North Bassett Street

A 22-year-old student encountered two men in the University Avenue and North Bassett Street area early Sunday, resulting in one of the men hitting the student for “no apparent reason,” according to a Madison Police Department incident report.

The student reported he tried to talk to the first suspect when the second suspect delivered a blow to the student’s face, MPD Lt. Eric Tripke wrote in the report. The student then called police to report the battery.

The two suspects were not at the scene when police responded to the call. They are described as two males, one of an unknown race and the other Hispanic. The first man wore a pink hoodie, while the second man, described as having a muscular build, wore a dark blue hoodie.

Medical officials determined the student had a broken jaw and several missing teeth upon his arrival at an area hospital, the report said.
