“We have multiple scenes where physical altercations took place, so that’s what we’re trying to piece together is the time frame, how this all unfolded, who was involved when, and we’re checking local businesses for surveillance video just to find out what actually took place,” Ungricht said.

Ungricht asked for anyone who witnessed the assaults to contact police at 801-799-3000.
