Police: Robbers steal victim’s wallet, clothes off his back
Victim surmised that women set up the robbery
MADISON, Wis. — Madison police said two Madison men who were out “looking for ladies” early Saturday morning ended up getting robbed, with one of them also being robbed of the clothes, shoes and socks he was wearing.
Police said the victims — a 23-year-old and a 34-year-old from Madison — flagged down a Madison police officer at the corner of Jacobs Way and Frisch Road around 4:15 a.m. Saturday.
Both were very intoxicated and admitted they had spent the past couple of hours driving around with a couple of women they had met at a Verona Road gas station, police said.
Police said one woman drove one victim’s car, since he was drunk. He sat in the passenger seat, with his friend in back with the other woman.
While on the road, intoxicating beverages were consumed and marijuana was smoked, and the men believed they were going to continue the party at one woman’s home, according to a Madison Police Department incident report.
When they got out of the car in the 6700 block of Jacobs Way, they were confronted by two masked gunmen. The robbers took jewelry, a wallet, money, car keys and an iPhone, as well as one victim’s clothes, shoes and Michael Jordan brand socks, police said.
When asked what happened to the women, one of the victims said, “They just walked away,” according to the police report.
Police said that while standing in his boxer shorts and tank top, talking to an investigating officer, the victim surmised they had been set up.
