ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. - Adams County Deputy Jason Belmont is being held on $150,000 bond in a kidnapping and sexual assault case.
Belmont, a deputy in the Patrol Division, was taken into custody by the Aurora Police Department on June 4.
The 42-year-old was arrested on charges of kidnapping and sexual assault during a domestic violence incident with his estranged wife, according to the affidavit.
She called police around 9 p.m. on Tuesday to say she was on her way to The Medical Center of Aurora after being sexually assaulted, the document states. She arrived about 30 minutes later and told an officer that Belmont was responsible.
The affidavit notes that she "started to cry with every response she made" during the interview.
She told the officer that she and Belmont became involved in an argument over the phone and through text messages after she had picked their children up earlier in the day. Eventually, they agreed to meet in the parking lot of a Home Depot, where the affidavit says the argument continued.
"Jason Belmont finally told her that she had some mail at the S. Waco Way address and that he would also give her some money," the affidavit said.
"She added that she has wanted a divorce from Jason Belmont since October 2003, but Jason Belmont will not agree to a divorce unless she gives up custody of their children."
Belmont, his estranged wife and their children returned to his home. According to the document, the kids began playing outside and he went upstairs to work on a toilet while she laid down on a couch to rest.
While she was lying on the couch, he allegedly picked her up and carried her to the master bedroom where he threw her onto the bed. She told police in the hospital she was pretending to be asleep at this time.
The affidavit says he shut the doors, stripped naked and began to "violently remove her pants."
At this time, she told the officer, she told him she was "not interested" and to "stop."
Belmont eventually succeeded in removing her clothes but found a digital recorder she was carrying to document their arguments.
"Jason Belmont became very angry after finding the recorder and told her that he thought that she was trying to 'set him up,'" the affidavit states.
She told the officer Belmont raped her twice after that and then refused to allow her to dress or leave. She said he told her no one would believe her story and covered her mouth when she tried to cry out for help.
After she was eventually allowed to leave with her 2-year-old, she told the officer, a friend convinced her to go to the hospital.
Although she said no weapons were involved in this incident, she did tell the officer that Belmont has held a gun to her head in the past.
After Belmont's arrest, a statement from the sheriff's office called the allegations "serious" and noted they are "purported to have occurred in the city of Aurora, outside of the jurisdictional boundaries of the Adams County Sheriff’s Office."
Belmont has a prior domestic-violence related arrest in Wheat Ridge for trespassing.
"The Sheriff’s Office will follow the case closely and initiate any internal investigations, when appropriate, pursuant to our policies and procedures," the statement said.
Belmont has been employed by the Adams County Sheriff’s Office since 2004, according to sheriff's office.
He is due back in court on June 10.
