Two Ypsilanti men were arrested after they were accused of beating two people, including a 43-year-old woman, at an Ann Arbor bar early Saturday morning, police said.
Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said police responded at 1:56 a.m. Saturday to the 300 block of South Main Street after receiving reports that two men were punching a woman.
