Dad, 3-year-old daughter, victims of car jacking in child-care center parking lot

MADISON (WKOW) — An Edgerton man and his 3-year-old daughter were the victims of two carjackers Wednesday in the parking lot of a west-side Madison child care center.

The man had just picked up his 3-year-old Wednesday afternoon from La Petite Academy on Schroeder Road when both front doors of his Toyota Prius swung open, according to a Madison Police Department incident report.

The man told police there were two masked men, one outside each door, and the one next to the driver’s side was pointing a handgun – from one to two feet away — directly at the his head.

The robber told the man to get out of the car, and as he did, the gunman dug through the 34-year-old dad’s pockets, taking his wallet.

The carjackers did allow the victim to safely get his daughter out of her seat before taking off in his Prius.

Madison police swarmed the area, and the car was soon recovered in the 7500 block of Tree Lane.

Music was playing, and the front doors were wide open.

The robbers were gone, as was the victim’s wallet and electronics, including his work laptop computer.
