You can’t get Iowa and Wisconsin together for a football game and not have some sort of weird incident occur in the stands. Madison cops say a Badgers fan is wanted for punching an Iowa teen.
UW-Madison Police are asking for assistance from Badgers fans after a 15-year-old Iowa fan was attacked by a Badgers fan at the end of Saturday’s game.
They say around 2:30 p.m., the boy, wearing Iowa Hawkeyes gear, was exiting the stadium with friends when an unidentified man punched him in the face. The teen victim says he was mildly teasing his friend, who is a Badgers fan, about the Iowa win. That’s when the suspect approached him, striking him in the face. The attack was unprovoked and the suspect then fled into the crowd.
The only description of the suspect is he is approximately 20-25 years old, was wearing a red shirt and jeans and was last seen exiting the upper deck via the south stadium ramp.
The Iowa City Press-Citizen adds that the boy suffered scratches and bruising, but that he’ll be OK.
“Unfortunately, it’s going to be tough,” [Marc] Lovicott said of finding the suspect. “The description that we have, you know, matches tens of thousands of fans.”
Iowa won 10-6.
Overheard at Camp Randall: "I left the game last week in a better mood, and that's when I was getting arrested."
