According to a report from Madison police, Mitchell L. McGann, 27, was arrested after punching a 22-year-old man in the eye twice in the 500 block of State Street.

The victim said the attack was random and McGann punched him in the eye “for no reason.”

According to the report, officers caught McGann as he was leaving a restaurant. He was taken into custody. McGann said he had perceived some inappropriate exchange with the victim was the reason for the attack.

He was taken into custody and is being charged with disorderly conduct, battery and probation violation.
