Two men were arrested in an attack on a man at an East Side park on Wednesday, Madison police reported.

Police responded to 200 North First St. on a report of a fight shortly after 5 p.m. Wednesday, officer Ryan Kimberley said in a statement.

Wisconsin has seen its share of heinous serial killers over the years. Here's a look back at the horrific criminal cases that have scarred state history.

Arriving officers did not see a disturbance at that address, but when they checked nearby Burr Jones Park they saw two men, one armed with a belt, attacking another man who was on the ground, Kimberley said.

Aaron Mixon, 24, and Nathan Dougherty, 38, were arrested. Mixon was tentatively charged with battery with the use of a dangerous weapon, felony and misdemeanor bail jumping, and a warrant out of Janesville for domestic battery, while Dougherty was taken into custody for a probation/parole violation, Kimberley said.

The man who was attacked was checked out by EMS and released at the scene, Kimberley said.
