Man accused of attacking 2 women near UW-Madison pleads not guilty to new charges

MADISON, Wis. - The man accused of the attempted abduction and assaults of two Madison women in October entered a plea of not guilty Thursday on new charges in connection with an assault in September.

Coleman Chung, 30, was arrested in November in connection with the Oct. 2 assault and attempted abduction on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.

Chung wore a white surgical mask when he approached the student from behind, duct taped her mouth and wrists and attempted to get her into the trunk of his vehicle, according to court documents. He hit her on the head with a hatchet and held a knife to her throat, causing a laceration that required stitches. 

Chung was arrested in connection with two alleged attempted abductions of female college students on the UW campus, one on Sept. 30 and the other on Oct. 2. In both instances, the alleged victims were able to escape, but the second victim suffered serious injuries, according to court documents. 

The new charges allege Chung recorded videos and took pictures of a woman he sexually assaulted on Sept. 28 in Gordon Commons.

Chung was charged with four counts of second-degree sexual assault and one count of capturing an intimate representation without consent.

According to court documents, a detective found four videos and two pictures created on Chung’s iPod Touch. The files depicted images and videos of an unconscious female being sexually assaulted on a booth in Gordon Commons.

Chung faces five counts in connection with the October attacks. He was charged with possession of child pornography and was originally sentenced to five years of probation.
