Suspect flees after groping pedestrian

A pedestrian was sexually assaulted by a stranger Tuesday night, near the intersection of W. Dayton Street and Mills Street, according to a Madison Police Department Crime Warning sent Thursday morning.

The suspect approached the victim from behind, grabbed their buttocks and fled, the report said.

The suspect is described as approximately six feet tall with skinny build and short buzzed haircut, last seen wearing a white undershirt-style t-shirt, black athletics shorts with a red stripe down the side and black athletic shoes, according to the statement.

MPD is investigating the incident, and encourage anyone with any information to come forward. The release also stressed that sexual assault is never the fault of the victim and that resources are available for anyone experiencing sexual trauma.
