MADISON, Wis. -

A Janesville man was arrested early Saturday morning for hitting two men who were speaking Hebrew in the 200 block of North Henry Street.

Dylan T. Grall, 23, punched the two men around 2:19 a.m. when he heard them speaking Hebrew, police said. Grall swore at the men and demanded they speak English.

Officials said both men were hit in the face; one fell to the ground and the other had an eye that was nearly swollen shut.

Grall denied hitting the two men but admitted to telling them to speak English, according to a release. Grall told police he thought the men were speaking Spanish. A witness said Grall did attack the two other men.

Grall was arrested on two charges of battery with a hate crime enhancer.
