Check out the full incident report below:
A teacher boarded a Madison Metro Bus near Regent and Mills Street, as it headed towards the South Transfer Point on 10/18/2013. The female suspect moved to an area directly behind the victim, and started playing with the victim’s hair. The victim felt her hair being touch, and turned around to acknowledge she did not like that, but didn’t think much more about what she thought was inadvertent contact. The victim pulled the indicator to disembark the bus, and later determined that at least 3 inches of her hair (originally 18 inches long) had been cut by the suspect with scissors! The suspect was reported to have celebrated this invasion/violation of the victim after she left the bus, and police are now following up on leads to locate the responsible party. If anyone has any information about this incident, they are encouraged to contact the Madison Police Department.
