UW Police arrest teen accused of inappropriate touching, slapping while on scooter

MADISON, Wis. — The University of Wisconsin-Madison Police Department says it has arrested a teenager from Waunakee for a string of sexual assaults while passing people on a scooter.

On Wednesday, UWPD officials first released images of the person who they believed inappropriately touched and slapped people.

By Friday afternoon, UW police said they had arrested the teenager, who now faces two counts of 4th-degree sexual assault, with other charges possible from other police departments. The UWPD previously said the incidents occurred both on campus and in downtown Madison.

The teen has not yet been formally charged in court, so News 3 Now is withholding his name at this time.

Anyone who believes they were slapped or touched by the suspect is urged to contact UW police at 608-264-2677.
