A man was arrested after attacking a group of tourists visiting the Gulch.

It all started near Biscuit Love restaurant.

A police report said a stranger walked through the group and grabbed the necks of two men then touched two women in a "provocative way."

The suspect walked away, but moments later, he allegedly ran toward the group and tackled one of the men.

The group was able to run away into the nearby business, Accessoreyes, and got the owner to lock the doors while they called police.

The suspect was identified as James Murph.

Police said he resisted as they arrested him and even head butted some of the officers.

Murph was charged with multiple assault charges.
