Teens arrested for gang motivated fight


MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison police say two teens, both 16, were arrested Tuesday afternoon for their roles in a gang motivated fight.

The fight took place Tuesday morning at the South Transfer Point on Park Street.  Initially, the fight was between one of the teens arrested and a 17-year-old rival gang member. 

During the fight, the other 16-year old joined in and, what started as mutual combat, turned into a battery.  The 17-year old was punched and kicked by the other two before they fled.

There has been a long running feud between the two gangs.

The 16-year-old boys were both arrested on tentative charges of disorderly conduct.  Madison police plan to arrest the 17-year-old for his role in the fight.
