15 year-old attacked at Badgers Game

A 15 year-old Iowa Hawkeyes fan was attacked by a Badger fan at the end of Saturday’s football game at Camp Randall Stadium, according to UW-Madison Police Department.

At approximately 2:30 PM, a 15-year-old boy wearing Iowa Hawkeyes gear was exiting Camp Randall Stadium with friends, when an unidentified man punched him in the face.

The victim told officers he was mildly teasing his friend a Badger fan about the Iowa win, when the suspect approached him and struck him in the face. The attack was unprovoked, and the suspect fled into the crowd exiting the stadium.

Very little is known about the suspect. He is being described as being between 20-25 years old wearing a red shirt and jeans. He was last seen exiting the upper deck via the south stadium ramp.

The 15-year-old victim suffered bruising and scratching to his face, but wasn’t seriously injured.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the UW-Madison Police Department at (608) 264-2677.
