MADISON (WKOW) -- Friday afternoon, a 21-year-old woman was walking along W. Gilman Street when a stranger pushed her from behind. It was what the man did afterwards that caused bystanders to give chase.
The man, after pushing the woman, lifted up her skirt. A couple of men who witnessed the event, chased the suspect, but got away.
However, thanks to the victim's description of her assailant, officers caught up to him later in the evening near State Street.
21-year-old Nicholas Tarter, of Urbana, Illinois, was arrested for lewd, lascivious behavior and disorderly conduct.
