SUBJECT: Boulder Police investigating sexual assault are asking witnesses to
Boulder Police are investigating the possible sexual assault of a woman who was
found by two passersby at about 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 18, in the area of
12th and College streets. The passersby helped the woman get home. The woman's
roommates then took her to the hospital.
The woman, 21, is a CU student. She initially told investigators she had been
sexually assaulted sometime earlier in the evening in the area of Grandview
Avenue and Broadway Street. After further investigation, it is unclear where
the incident occurred.
This case remains under investigation, and the department is not releasing
additional details. At this point, investigators have no information that links
this to recent reported sexual assaults. Detectives are continuing to talk with
the victim and possible witnesses and work to corroborate the information that
has been provided.
Investigators are interested in speaking with the two female passersby who
found the woman.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact Detective Colleen
Wilcox at 303-441-3330 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. After hours,
please call the non-emergency dispatch line at 303-441-3333. Those with
information who wish to remain anonymous should contact the Northern Colorado
Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or 1-800-444-3776. Tips can also be
submitted via the Crime Stoppers Web site at http://www.crimeshurt.com .

and filing of charges on a suspect(s) may be eligible for a cash reward
of up to $1,000 from Crime Stoppers.
CU is conducting outreach to the two CU student victims of recent assaults as
well as to their friends through the CU Office of Victim Assistance. Campus
officials encourage students to learn about the prevention of sexual assault
and acquaintance rape and the resources that are available for victims through
that office. Trained professionals can discuss incidents in private and assist
with the reporting of assaults to authorities. For information, call the Office
of Victim Assistance at 303-492-8855, or CU's Office of Counseling and
Psychological Services at 303-492-6766.
