MADISON (WKOW) -- A Monona man has been arrested in connection with two late-night attacks on a women.

Coleman Chung, 30, of Monona was arrested and is currently being held in the Dane County Jail on a federal probation warrant, according to a University of Wisconsin Police Department news release. Charges are pending and UWPD expects to refer charges to the Dane County District Attorney’s Office sometime next week.

The attack happened about 1 a.m. on Monday morning, Oct. 2, 2017, when a UW student was walking home from College Library when she was approached by an unknown man from behind, according to police. The victim was wearing earbuds and did not hear the suspect approach.

The attacker placed the victim into a headlock and forcefully moved her to a parking lot near the Social Sciences building on Observatory Drive.

The attacker, armed with an edged weapon, struck the victim multiple times – she was eventually able to fight the suspect off and ran away to get help. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

In a separate incident Sept. 29. a woman told police that she was walking in the 500 block of North Carroll Street about 1:48 a.m. when she was attacked from behind. A man that police later identified as Chung put the woman in a choke hold from behind and grabbed for her purse. He fled when she screamed.
