A woman walking in the 100 block of South Bedford Street was mugged on Wednesday night, according to the Madison Police Department.
Police said the woman reported the crime, which occurred at about 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, on Thursday morning after the urging of her boyfriend.
The 19-year-old victim told police that a man grabbed her from behind and threw her to the ground. She said he put two fingers in her mouth, so she could not yell, and demanded money.
The woman gave the man her cash and he left, police said. She was not hurt, but her neck was a little sore, police said.
The black man was wearing a mask with a zipper over his face, police said.
Anyone with information about the mugging is asked to call Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014.
