WELLINGTON -- Two men were arraigned in Oberlin Municipal Court Monday on charges of felonious assault following an incident Wednesday.

Just before 6 p.m. Jan. 15, the Ohio State Highway Patrol was sent to a reported assault at the Findlay State Park near Wellington in Lorain County.

The responding officer met with the victim, 44, at his Sullivan home and obtained a statement.

Through investigation, two suspects were developed -- Thomas J. Denes Jr., 34, of New London and Todd P. Denes, 31, of Wellington.

Thomas Denes was charged with one count of felonious assault and Todd Denes was charged with felonious assault and one count of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
