Boulder woman sexually assaulted by home intruder early Saturday; Police trying to ID suspect

BOULDER, Colo. - Boulder police are investigating a sexual assault reported by a 22-year-old woman early Saturday morning.

Police were called about 5 a.m. to the woman's home on University Avenue and 9th Street, about four blocks west of the CU campus, said Boulder police spokeswoman Kim Kobel.

The woman told officers she'd been sexually assaulted by an unknown male intruder in her home. The woman confronted the man, who ran from the home.

The victim wasn't able to provide a detailed description of her attacker, Kobel said. The woman described him as between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8 with a "smaller" build and a "narrow" face. He was wearing dark-colored clothing, including some type of workout jacket, sweatshirt or rain jacket.

There were no signs of forced entry into the home, and the roommates say the home may have been left unlocked.

Boulder police want to remind everyone to lock their doors and windows. If you see anything that you consider suspicious, please call police right away by dialing 911.

If you do see someone who seems questionable, try to get a good look at them if you can remain safe in doing so.

-- What are they wearing?

-- What is their race?

-- What is their eye color, hair color?

-- About how old do they look?

-- Do they have tattoos or other unusual identifying marks?

-- Is there anything else that’s unique or distinguishable about the suspect?
