Man who knocked man unconscious in downtown Madison garage arrested

A 23-year-old was arrested after police said he attacked a group on State Street and later inside a parking garage Sunday.

Madison police said Percell T. Swiney, of Madison, repeatedly punched a 22-year-old McFarland man at 2:35 a.m., knocking him unconscious inside the State Street Campus Garage at 415 N. Lake Street.

According to the report, Swiney had earlier made derogatory comments to a 20-year-old Sun Prairie woman as she walked on State Street with two friends. Police said the men with the woman told Swiney he was out of line, and Swiney hit the woman in the face and left.

She and her friends were about to get in a car in the garage when Swiney reappeared and attacked the McFarland man, police said.

According to the report, officers were nearby and the suspect was quickly arrested after he battered the McFarland man.
