Police siren lights light bar squad car

A Madison man who allegedly told a 14-year-old girl he wanted to commit sex acts on her at his home was arrested at a bus station where he had been talking with the girl.

Stephan Margle, 56, was tentatively charged with disorderly conduct, bail jumping and on a probation hold, Madison police said.

At the time of his arrest, he was out on bail for a case involving lewd and lascivious behavior from January.

Police were called to the Madison Metro bus south transfer point, 802 W. Badger Road, at about 4:10 p.m. Monday.
