APPLETON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin officials have charged two Florida men in connection to the beating and sexual assault of a homeless man in Outagamie County.

Post-Crescent Media reports (https://post.cr/1yuOYRS ) prosecutors on Tuesday charged 28-year-old Alexsander Mirkovich with substantial battery and party to first-degree sexual assault. They charged 48-year-old Anthony Gomez with first-degree sexual assault and party to substantial battery.

A 20-year-old man tells police he met the men at the Fox Valley Warming Shelter. Police say he suffered a broken nose and facial injuries when the men attacked him nearby.

Mirkovich told police he and Gomez were visiting a relative. He says he didn’t harm the man.

A court commissioner set $10,000 bond for both men and ordered them not to contact the victim or each other. Online jail records didn’t indicate attorneys.
