A Cheyenne man was taken to the hospital and another arrested after a fight in the Avenues late Tuesday afternoon.

Cheyenne Police Department spokesman Officer Dan Long says officers were called to West 3rd Avenue and Capitol Avenue around 4:30 p.m. after receiving a report of two men fighting.

"Officers arrived on scene and found 37-year-old James Martinez hitting 48-year-old Robert Romero, Jr.," said Long. "Romero was transported to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center and Martinez was arrested for aggravated assault."

Long says it's unclear if the men knew each other or what caused the fight.

Martinez's preliminary hearing is scheduled for October 13 in Laramie County Circuit Court.
