Teen arrested in "point 'em out, knock 'em out" crime

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison police were called  to the 6500 block of Schroeder Road just after 7:00 Monday night for the report of a battery.

A 69-year-old male fell victim to a "point 'em out, knock 'em out" crime.  A group of young teens approached the man from behind when a 14-year-old struck the man in the back of his head, unsuccessfully attempting to render him unconscious.  The victim turned around and announced he was calling MPD.  

The victim was able to provide police with descriptions of the five boys as they fled the area.  The suspects were located walking near the intersection of Watts Road and Struck Street.

Four of the boys were released to their guardians, while the primary suspect was taken to the Juvenile Reception Center.  He told police his friends encouraged him to commit the crime.  MPD will recommend the district attorney charge four of the boys with being party to a crime.

The 14-year-old who struck the victim was arrested for battery to an elderly or at-risk individual.
