Sex Assault and Unlawful Sexual Contact Suspect Arrested

The Boulder Police Department has arrested a male suspect for Sexual Assault and Unlawful Sexual Contact. The male suspect was a juvenile at the time of the incident. The Boulder Police Department is seeking additional witnesses to the incident. Additionally, anyone who feels they may have been victimized in a similar way is encouraged to contact police.

At the end of August of 2019, the Boulder Police Department began investigating allegations of sexual assault involving multiple female victims and one male suspect. The incident occurred on 09/15/2018 on a party bus in the city of Boulder. The suspect and victims were juveniles on the date of the incident.  Multiple detectives conducted interviews with witnesses and victims in this incident. Detectives wish to speak to anyone who may have additional information about what occurred, including any videos or photographs of the assaults.
