Would-be thief gets away empty-handed


MADISON (WKOW) -- A 27-year-old Madison woman began screaming and holding her purse strap tightly Sunday night as a man tried to rob her.

The man was described as being 6' tall with an athletic build and was wearing baggy clothing.  He bumped into her and said nothing, but tried to run away with her purse.

The incident happened near the intersection of S. Baldwin and E. Wilson with passersby in the area. 

She was able to hold onto her purse and he fled with nothing.
