A homeless man violently grabbed my arm. Is this assault? (see details)

Denver, CO |

He had been following me and yelling obscene comments. When I ignored him, he grabbed my arm and yelled, "B*!ch you look at me when I talk to you." A man witnessed this happening and when he ran up, the homeless man fled.

  1. Yes not only assault, but also battery. You should (have) report it to the police.

  2. Denver:
    You are either the victim to an assault or harassment. The difference is whether you felt any pain when he grabbed you.


  3. I agree, this is a matter for the police.
