Salt Lake City police Detective Robin Snyder said the woman’s alleged attacker, a 63-year-old man, had been detained by bystanders for officers, who took him into custody without further incident.

It was not immediately known what led to the altercation.

The man, a transient from California, was being held without bail Tuesday in the Salt Lake County jail on suspicion of second-degree felony attempted murder and numerous misdemeanor counts ranging from retail theft to public intoxication.
