MADISON, Wis. -

Police said three men attempted to rob a couple Saturday near an apartment building on Troy Drive.

According to the report, a Madison woman, 23, was walking with her boyfriend, a 34-year-old Madison man, in an apartment building parking lot at about 6 p.m. The couple told police they saw three men hurry past them carrying speakers from the woman’s car.

The thieves went into an apartment but the man called them back out, police said.
