Police release sketch of early-morning sex assault suspect
Police in Boulder are asking the public for help in identifying the suspect allegedly involved in an early-morning sex assault near the area of 28th and Baseline Saturday morning.
A sketch of the suspect is attached. The victim in the attack describes the suspect as a light-skinned black male with glasses, about 6’0” tall with a medium build. He has a three-inch long light brown afro, and may have been wearing a pick in his hair. At the time of the assault he was wearing a purple shirt with neon-green lettering, along with khaki pants.
The victim is an 18-year-old resident of Boulder. She was walking alone to a fast-food restaurant along the 28th Street frontage road at about 4:30 Saturday morning. She heard footsteps and was grabbed from behind, and then was sexually assaulted. The victim’s arm had been broken several weeks ago, and it was broken again during the assault.
After the assault, the victim went to a nearby business to ask for help and call police. She was treated at a hospital, and has been released.
