A 22-year-old man was kicked and beaten by three men during a home invasion on West Johnson Street Monday night, according to the Madison Police Department.
The victim and Peter L. Lorenz, 22, of Madison, were in a dispute over money at about 7:30, police said. Both were inside the victim's apartment, when two other associates of Lorenz burst through the door.
The men battered the victim, police said. They were called after a concerned citizen heard pleas for help coming from the apartment and notified police.
The men left as officers arrived. Lorenz and Ander M. Saleh, 21, of Madison, were found and arrested on charges of substantial battery and burglary. Lorenz also faces a charge of strangulation. The third man remains at large.
The victim was taken to a hospital for body and head injuries, including a possible broken nose and temple, police said. Cash and a cellphone were taken during the robbery, police said.
