Man mugged in own driveway, police say

Group of robbers open car door, steal wallet as man returns home

MADISON, Wis. - Police said a Madison man was robbed in his west side driveway last week.

The Madison Police Department said a 35-year-old man was coming from work to his home on the 6300 block of Bettys Lane at about 3:54 a.m. on Saturday.

Police said as soon as he parked his vehicle, a man opened the driver's-side door and began punching him in the face. The victim told police another man took his wallet and fled. Police believe the robbers left in a car, as the victim heard tires screeching immediately after the mugging.

The victim suffered facial injuries, police said.

The victim told police there were three or four robbers. They were described as black, all in their 20s and about 6 feet tall.
