A 19-year-old female was sexually assaulted in a car Saturday night, according to the Madison Police Department.

The assault likely occurred in the downtown campus area around 11:30 p.m., an incident report from the department said. 

The victim had come to Madison from out of state to visit friends for the Wisconsin-Michigan football game. She was separated from her friends and accepted a ride to meet them at a bar from the suspects of the assault.

Then, one of the suspects sexually assaulted her in the vehicle. Shortly after, the victim escaped from the car. The victim’s friends reported the incident to the police.

City cameras are currently being reviewed by MPD as the victim is unfamiliar with the area.

The primary suspect is described as a male with an athletic build, short hair and a short beard, according to the incident report. The suspect's vehicle may be a white sedan.  

This is an ongoing investigation.
