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

Asked about 1 year ago - 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.
