JUNEAU, Wis. -

Authorities said two men were injured in a fight in Theresa, Wis., early Sunday.

The Dodge County Sheriff’s Department received a report of a stabbing from St. Agnes Hospital staff after two men were admitted with stab wounds.

Dodge County Det. Theodore Sullivan said four men fought at a South Milwaukee Street home in Theresa after a drinking party.

According to the report, a 21-year-old Campbellsport man with stab wounds  was admitted to St. Agnes hospital for treatment and a 20-year-old Lomira man received cuts in the fight.

The men were taken to the hospital by friends or family separately, the detective said.

The report noted the Campbellsport man was in stable condition.

The Lomira man was treated, released to Dodge County Sheriff's Department, and charged on suspicion of felony first-degree reckless injury, the report said.

Two other men were charged with battery and one of them also with strangulation.

The sheriff’s department said the county district attorney's office will review the case for possible additional charges.

This case is under investigation by the Dodge County Sheriff's Department Detective Bureau, Sullivan said.

A representative with the Dodge County Sheriff’s Department said the names of the men were being withheld as of Sunday afternoon.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
