Police: Alcohol, disagreement likely causes of south side attack

22-year-old allegedly pushes, punches, kicks another man, officials say

MADISON, Wis. - Madison police said alcohol and a disagreement led to a fight and physical disturbance on Madison's south side April 7.

Police responded to the 500 block of Bram Street near Baird Street around 5:45 p.m. for reports of a robbery, according to a release.

Officers talked with a 56-year-old man who had abrasions and minor injuries about whether he had been attacked, authorities said. The man did not want to answer questions, but witnesses told police they saw the 56-year-old being pushed, punched and kicked on the ground by Noah Carpino, 22, of Madison.

Witnesses did not have details about what happened between the 56-year-old and Carpino that led to the fight, but they believed alcohol and a disagreement contributed to the attack, police said.

Carpino was arrested on tentative charges of disorderly conduct.
