Homeless man arrested for assaulting church attendees with rock, piano bench

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) ” Boulder police have arrested a homeless man on charges of attacking two people at a church, one with a piano bench and another with a rock.

Police say 34-year-old Jullian Lee Simmons was arrested on Sunday after the assaults at St. John’s Episcopal Church.

Police say Simmons was getting a haircut as part of the church’s homeless outreach program when he threw a pair of clippers at the man who was cutting his hair and then hit him in the back with the bench.

Officiers say he struck a woman in the face with a rock outside the church as he left.

Witnesses called 911. Simmons has been jailed on suspicion of second- and third-degree assault and criminal mischief.
