The alleged assault happened on Saturday at McKay Dee Hospital around 1:30 p.m.
According to arresting documents, officers received reports that 21-year-old Ryan Deon Richardson had “groped several female nurses, assaulted security, and assaulted male nurses,” while in the hospital for five days.
On Saturday, police said Richardson charged at a female nurse when a male nurse had to stop him.
Richardson then reportedly struggled and tried to “trip the male nurse, by kicking his leg and pushing him,” before tackling the nurse into a wall.
A security staff member was able to place Richardson in handcuffs with the assistance of another nurse, arresting documents show.
He was then arrested for assault of a health care provider.
