Not much, as I wasn't there, but this from the Occupy Denver website:
"Occupiers Tanner Spendly and Caryn Sodaro were assaulted by two passersby during a media interview. Immediately following the incident..."

Haven't seen this posted yet, so go below the squiggle for the rest...

Continuing from the post on the Occupy Denver site:

Tanner sent this email:

“At about 7 pm tonight two
provacatoures [sic] assaulted caryn sodaro with security and tanner spendley during a fox news interview. While attempting to take her [the assailant's] picture she grabbed my phone, at which point her boyfriend assaulted me. He was quickly removed peacefully at which point they ran off along with the fox reporter. We believe this was an intentional act to paint us as violent.”

Tanner Spendley is filing a police report on the assault.

Description of assailants from Occupiers on scene:
“Couple in mid 20s.

Lady- Black fleece and jeans, 5’5″. Dark hair.

Guy- 5’9″, sandy blonde hair, blue sweatshirt (shirt maybe said ‘Minnesota’), baseball cap.”

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
