Madison (WKOW) -- from Madison PD: On Thursday afternoon, an 18-year old Madison man was walking in the area of Mohawk Circle near Mohawk Drive around 5:30 p.m. when a stranger approached.
The stranger pulled out a gun, pointed it at the victim, and ordered the victim to turn over his wallet.
The victim was going to do this until he recognized the weapon to be a BB pistol.
He told a responding police officer he knew this to be the case because he, in fact, owns the same gun.
The victim says he called the suspect on the ruse, and the suspect turned and ran away.
The perpetrator is described as a black male, roughly 18-21 years old, 5'8", with a slender build, dark complexion, and corn rolls in hair, wearing a white hoodie with fancy designs on it, including stars.
