Two armed men were sought in an attempted carjacking of a woman’s vehicle on the South Side on Monday afternoon, Madison police reported.
Officers were sent about 12:45 p.m. Monday to the 900 block of South Park Street on a report of a weapon violation, Sgt. Nicholas Ellis said in a report.
A 19-year-old woman told police that two men she knew who were armed with handguns followed her in a vehicle through various parts of Madison, until at one point one of the suspects exited the vehicle and pointed a handgun at the woman and attempted to take her vehicle, Ellis said.
Both men fled after the woman told them that she had called police, Ellis said.
