Homeless man arrested for destruction of property on State Street

Madison police arrested a 43-year-old homeless man early Saturday morning after he damaged multiple properties on State Street, including Jamba Juice and A Room of One’s Own bookstore.

The suspect, Nathan W. Revercomb, recklessly damaged three separate buildings on State Street with a wooden walking stick, Madison Police Department Public Information Officer Joel DeSpain said in a Tuesday statement.

Revercomb also broke the window of a local 37-year-old woman’s SUV with the stick, leaving her “scared and crying,” according to the report. Police later determined the suspect also shattered the window of a car parked near State Street.

Police were alerted to the incident by calls from pedestrians near Jamba Juice, located on the 400 block of State Street, and A Room of One’s Own bookstore, located on the 300 block of West Gorham Street.

Police arrested Revercomb on five counts of criminal damage to property and one count of disorderly conduct.
