MADISON — Madison police have now released images of people of interests connected to the assault of a state senator.

Madison police said the senator, who was later identified as Tim Carpenter, was attacked by a group of protesters on June 24 while on his way to the Capitol building.

Police said Carpenter was attacked by protesters after he used his phone to take a photo or video of the protest. Police said three people rushed him and battered him.

A witness told police that approximately ten people punched and kicked Carpenter as he tried to explain that he was an ally.

On July 14, Madison police released images of two people of interest in connection to Carpenter's assault.
