MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- A 32-year-old Madison woman was arrested for assaulting two City of Madison parking ramp attendants on Thursday evening.

Keisha A. El was pulled over on Swanton Drive and taken into custody on two counts of battery and two counts of disorderly conduct, according to the Madison Police Department.

El is accused of striking a 22-year-old parking attendant and throwing her to the pavement by the hair.

When a 59-year-old coworker came to the victim's aid, the suspect is accused of then pushing her backwards into a parking attendant booth inside the State Street Campus Garage on 430 N. Frances St., according to the department.

The victims were in the process of recording the suspect's license plate number after a passenger in the woman's car damaged a parking gate at 12:30 a.m. on June 13.

A surveillance camera captured the confrontations which added to the investigating officers' ability to quickly identify a suspect. El did drive away from the scene, but was located later in the day.

Neither victim was seriously hurt, but the younger woman choked back tears and needed to compose herself while telling police how badly the incident had shaken her.
