UWPD has arrested Brian N. Campbell, 29, of Madison on tentative charges of strangulation and disorderly conduct.

Early Friday morning, September 2, 2016, at approximately 1:00 a.m., the UW-Madison Police Department was dispatched to the Memorial Union lakeshore for a report of a battery.

The victim and the offender are known to each other and the offender fled the scene before police arrived.

The suspect is a white male, 29 years old, 5’11”, 150 pounds, with blonde hair and blue eyes.

The UW-Madison Police Department is currently investigating this case. Anyone with information on this case is urged to contact UWPD at (608) 264-2677.

While nothing is a fail-safe, there are things you can do to that might help protect yourself and the campus community:

  • Be active in supporting a safe and respectful community. If you see others engaging in disrespectful or inappropriate actions, speak up and get involved, or contact someone else to assist.
  • If you’re a bystander and see someone behaving in a way that seems suspicious, step in and do something about it. If you don’t feel comfortable or safe confronting them, call 911.
  • If you sense that something is wrong and a situation may turn unsafe, step in and do something.
  • It can feel awkward to step in and say something if you notice harmful behavior, but often all it takes is a brief introduction. Let the potential perpetrator know that their actions are noticeable.
