Police: 19-year-old man cut open window screens downtown, robbed several apartments

MADISON, Wis. - A 19-year-old man, Shan K. Daley, was arrested after numerous reports after entering and attempting to enter apartments on Gerry Court, Spring Street and North Mills Street around 3:19 a.m. Friday morning, police said.

A 19-year-old North Mills Street resident was one of several who called police Friday, an incident report said.

Officers established a perimeter and took Daley into custody on three counts of burglary and four counts of attempted burglary.

Police found window screens cut in apartments on Gerry Court, Spring Street and North Mills Street.

The 19-year-old victim woke up to hear her bedroom window being opened and her curtains being yanked. The suspect wasn't able to enter the window because her bed was blocking the entrance. Police said he broke a screen to another window of the victim's apartment, opened a window and came inside. She fled out of the front door.

Other victims reported miscellaneous items missing, including a potted plant that was returned.

The suspect smelled of intoxicants.
