Three arrested after beating of East Towne Mall security officer

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) – Madison police arrested three people after a security officer at East Towne Mall was allegedly punched by one of the suspects.

Officials say the security officer recognized a 16-year-old female that had been banned from the mall after being arrested there for disorderly conduct just a week earlier.  The officer attempted to talk to the female and a 16-year-old male companion when 18-year-old Aquille Lowe cut the officer off with his car.

According to the incident report, the three suspects began verbally attacking the security officer before Lowe punched him three times in the face.

Witnesses were able to confirm the attack on the security officer.  Police also recovered stolen merchandise from a number of stores within East Towne Mall.
