Details

A  Janesville man was arrested for two counts of battery, with a hate crime enhancer, after punching two men on N. Henry St. early this morning. The victims were speaking Hebrew when the suspect passed them on the street. He swore at the men and demanded they speak English. This led to a confrontation where the victims were both struck in the face. One fell to the ground. The other had an eye that was nearly swollen shut. The suspect denied delivering blows, but did acknowledge telling the men to speak English.  However, he thought they were talking in Spanish. An independent witness said the suspect did attack the two Hebrew speaking men.
