A 16 year old male was arrested and conveyed to the Dane County Juvenile Reception Center on Sunday afternoon, tentatively charged with two counts of battery.  The incident occurred near West Olin Avenue and Gilson Street.  The 16 year old punched two 17 year old female victims reportedly because he thought the two were involved in an attempt to steal his backpack and cell phone. The alleged theft attempt had occurred at the Goodman Pool. Injuries were not believed to be serious.
Witnesses and a check of social media postings were helpful in identifying and locating the young man.
