PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Police have arrested a 38-year-old man on investigation of assault and intimidation for attacking someone on the street in Portland.

The Portland Police Bureau says police responded to the city's Old Town neighborhood at about 8:15 p.m. Wednesday to a report of an assault.

Police say Timothy Walsh had ridden his bike by a group and made a comment to a person about a man in woman's clothing.
