Man reports mugging in mall parking lot

A man and woman were behind the mugging of a Monona man at Westgate Mall Sunday afternoon, according to Madison police.

Police were called to the mall parking lot at 12:46 p.m. when a man reported being punched and robbed.

The 24-year-old victim told police he was approached from behind by a man asking for something, but kept heading for the exit after telling the man he couldn’t help him.

The victim said he was placed in a bear hug and then a choke hold before being taken to the pavement. A woman went through the victim’s pockets and took a diamond earring, wallet and phone.

Police said they believe the man and woman were working together.

The victim was punched before the man and woman fled. The man fled in a white pickup truck, and witnesses told police a woman also sped from the parking lot with the truck in a gold Honda Accord.

The man is described as white, in his 30s, 6 feet tall, with a medium build, short blond hair and wearing a red T-shirt and shorts.

The woman is described as white, in her 20s, with a thin build, blonde hair and wearing a white tube top, dark blue knee-length shirt and flip flops.
