MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison police say they've arrested a suspect in the assault of a jogger last week on the city's east side.

Officers arrested Tyler Smith, 33, on Friday. The Madison man is accused of punching a 26-year-old man just before 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 23.

The attack happened on the 2000 block of Winnebago Street.

The victim told police he was running on his normal route, when a man he didn't recognize punched him in the face. He says the man said nothing and did not try to rob him before running off. Police said the victim may have had a broken nose.
