DENVER - Denver police arrested a man they say assaulted a Good Samaritan in a wheelchair at a RTD bus stop Friday.

Police say Joseph McCoy-Dempsey, 20, was bothering a woman at the bus stop in the 1300 block of North Federal Boulevard when the man in the wheelchair asked Dempsey to stop.

That's when police said Dempsey began striking the Good Samaritan about the face several times. The victim required stitches and was transported to the hospital.

Dempsey was arrested at the scene. Police say he was already on probation for a prior assault in Aurora.
