UW-Madison student assaulted in Student Activity Center Wednesday night

UW-Madison sent out a campus-wide email Friday afternoon informing the student body about an assault that occurred Wednesday on the fourth floor of the Student Activity Center.

A still-unidentified man asked a male UW-Madison student for help Wednesday night. After the student agreed, the man led the student to the bathroom, where the man “sexually propositioned” the student, according to the email.

When the student refused consent, the man grabbed the student’s genitals over his clothes.

The student immediately called 911 and reported the crime to the UWPD, which is currently investigating the case.

The suspect is described as an Asian male in his early twenties with a medium build and black hair. He is 5’3” tall and roughly 140 pounds, and was reported to be wearing jeans, white sneakers and a dark blue A&F hoodie the last time he was seen, according to the email.

The email encouraged anyone with information about the assault to inform the UWPD at 608-264-2677.
