Police: 23-year-old faces multiple tentative felony charges in attack on 2 women including kidnapping, strangulation
MADISON, Wis. — A registered sex offender in Madison is facing felony charges in connection to an incident in downtown Madison earlier this month, police said.
The Madison Police Department said Tuesday that 23-year-old Kavi T. Fix was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping, strangulation, second-degree recklessly endangering safety, false imprisonment and disorderly conduct in an incident in the early morning hours on June 19.
Police said two women were left badly shaken after a man pointed a gun at one of their heads on Mendota Court at about 2:30 a.m.
According to the report, the friends, both 21, were walking together when a stranger came out of the shadows brandishing the gun. Both victims began screaming loudly, and the man ran.
Fix has been in the Dane County Jail on a parole hold since 7:28 a.m. on June 19, according to the arrest record.
According to state records, Fix is required to register as a sex offender until October 2035 for a conviction of third-degree sexual assault in an incident on Jan. 19, 2015. Fix pleaded guilty to the charge and was convicted on July 7, 2015, and sentenced in October that year. A five-year prison sentence was withheld with probation after six months served.
According to the record, he is compliant on his registration requirements with the state’s Sex Offender Registry Program. As a condition of his sentence in that case, Fix is banned from Elvehjem School and Park and Academy Drive. He is also prohibited from direct or indirect contact any minor female without agent permission.
