MADISON, Wis. — Madison police are investigating after they said a victim woke up to being sexually assaulted in their apartment near the UW campus.

Police said that at around 4 a.m. on Sunday, a man removed the window screen of an apartment in the North Park Street and Fahrenbrook Court area and entered through an unlocked window. The victim did not know the man.

The man is described as about six feet tall with a slender build and short hair. An investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information on the incident is urged to contact Madison Police Department at 608-255-2345 or Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014.

This is the second sexual assault reported near the UW campus in the past week. Last Tuesday, a 20-year-old woman said she was inappropriately groped and touched by a man she didn’t know near the intersection of North Bassett and West Mifflin streets.
