MADISON, Wis. - Early Tuesday morning, a man attempted to rob two individuals on the West side, according to a Madison Police Department incident report.

According to the report, the first victim, a 34-year-old man, woke up early in the morning to someone attempting to open the screen of a patio door at his Welton Drive home. Once the victim yelled out, the suspect ran away.

As officers investigated the incident, the report said a 55-year-old man, who lives nearby on Chautauqua Trail, approached the officers. The second victim said he was looking for a man who was inside his son's car.

After hearing his dog barking, the second victim woke up to see someone inside the car. When the second victim ran outside, the incident report said the thief ran away and didn't appear to steal anything.

According to the incident report, police believe the same person is responsible for both cases. The suspect is a black male between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall.
