(CHANNEL 3000) A 20-year-old Stoughton woman suffered non-life threatening injuries Tuesday night when she was robbed and shoved from a moving car, according to a release from Madison police.
The woman told police she had asked an acquaintance for a ride to Madison from her home in Stoughton. When the acquaintance arrived, there were three other men in the car with him. The victim said that once they got to Carling Drive, one of the men grabbed her money while another threatened to shoot her. She told police she didn’t see a gun.
The woman said she was then pushed out of the car. She held onto a door for several seconds, dragging on the pavement, before letting go and calling police. She suffered abrasions and was treated by Madison Fire Department paramedics.
One of the men is described as black, in his 20s, 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 140 pounds with dreadlocks with blond or red tips, and a gap in his front teeth.
