A pair of Milford men has been charged with conspiracy and other crimes following an altercation in the city.

Milford Police Department spokesman Sgt. Robert Masten said the incident took place July 27 at a home on Northeast 10th Street.

The men, identified as Tyler Townsley, 24, and Tanner Calhoun, 19, went to the home to confront someone there. Townsley allegedly brandished a firearm, confronting a second person at the home.
