Two 18-year-old Madison men were attacked by a man who said he had been called a derogatory name.

One of the victims told Madison police he was walking with a friend on South Randall Avenue at Mound Street on Saturday afternoon when they were attacked. The victims chased the attacker and held him until police arrived.

One of the men suffered a broken tooth and another was pushed to the ground, police said.

Caleb J. Percevecz, 26, of Madison, was arrested on suspicion of substantial battery and disorderly conduct. He needed stitches to his hand. He told police he had been drinking beer and shots prior to the attack.
