A man police identify as a transient from Sioux Falls climbed onto a train near Falls Park Monday afternoon and punched the engineer.

Officer Sam Clemens says it happened around 3:45 pm as the D&I Railroad train was idling on the bridge over Falls Park:

Clemens says police found 30-year-old Robert Charles Dam hiding in a wooded area east of the railroad bridge. Dam was arrested for simple assault and trespassing.

The railroad engineer had minor injuries.
