TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Five Pima County Jail officers are under arrest in what authorities say was an unprovoked assault outside a downtown Tucson bar.

Police Sgt. Chris Widmer says the five sheriff's employees assigned to the Pima County Adult Detention Center all face four counts each of aggravated assault.

He says the assault began early Wednesday morning when a man attempt to lock his bicycle outside the Buffet Bar.

Widmer says in a release that 1 of the assailants punched the man, who then sought help.

He says when the victim returned with another man, they were confronted by the five suspect who began punching and kicking them.

At one point, a neighbor man and his 17-year-old son tried to intervene and they were attacked.

Widmer says one man was treated at a hospital for serious injuries.

He identified the suspects as 30-year-old John Hyatt, 24-year-old Matthew Garcia, 25-year-old Anthony Bonfiglio, 23-year-old Angel Castaneda, and 26-year-old Steven Haglund.
