MADISON, Wis. -

Police said a Madison man was attacked early Saturday morning while he was walking alone on Mifflin Street.

According to the report, a 20-year-old man was walking on the 500 block of West Mifflin Street just after midnight when a stranger punched him in the mouth. The victim fell to the ground and police said he sustained a couple more punches in the torso. The victim swung back and hit the attacker in his ribs, police said. The attacker fled after he was hit, police said.

The victim told police no words were exchanged during the alleged attack. Police said robbery did not appear to be a motive in the fight.
