Woman calls police after man watching her from outside bedroom window exposes himself

Woman calls police after man watching her from outside bedroom window exposes himself

A 20-year-old woman called police to her Downtown residence late Wednesday night after a man stood outside her bedroom window and exposed himself.

Nearly half of State Street's 150 storefronts were boarded up in Downtown Madison last week. COVID-19 has ravaged the local economy and cost thousands of jobs, especially in the hospitality and retail industries. Looting and vandalism that followed local protests against police violence in Minneapolis, Kenosha and elsewhere caused further damage. What can the city do to bring back its signature shopping and entertainment corridor? Jason Ilstrup, president of Downtown Madison Inc., a business and booster organization, guest stars on this week's podcast, giving Milfred and Hands his prescription for future success. State Street musician Art Paul Schlosser makes a cameo appearance. Milfred and Hands tout this Sunday's Wisconsin State Journal editorial calling for State Street to become a pedestrian mall with more space outside for shops, cafes and public art. That will require moving buses off State Street.    

The woman said the man was standing outside her bedroom window on the 500 block of W. Mifflin Street at around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday "watching her," Madison police spokesperson Tyler Grigg said. The woman told her roommates about the man after he exposed himself, and they went outside to look for him but were unsuccessful. 

Officers also patrolled the area throughout the night. 

The man is described as being 30 to 40 years old with long, curly brown hair pulled back into a ponytail. The investigation is ongoing.
