Madison police said they’ve arrested a man who they believe was responsible for an incident where a 10-year-old Pardeeville girl said she was touched by a stranger while she and her mother were shopping at an east-side grocery store.
The girl was trailing a short distance behind her mother as they shopped at Hy-Vee, 3801 E. Washington Ave on May 3. She said she felt both of the man's fingers on her clothing, and then a tug. She yelled out for her mom. The Pardeeville parent confronted the man and he quickly fled the store, police said.
Reginald B. Kellum, 46, of Madison was arrested on suspicion of two count of disorderly conduct by an officer who spotted him walking near Mendota Street and Juniper Avenue on Friday.
