Convicted Boulder sex offender George Tiba caught in San Francisco

BOULDER, Colo. - San Francisco authorities arrested a sex offender who was convicted earlier this month when he failed to attend the last day of his trial in Boulder.

George Tiba, disappeared on Friday, Dec. 13 but his trial continued without him. He was convicted of sexual assault, burglary and theft in a case that occurred in Boulder in February of 2013.

"Authorities in San Francisco have worked with the Boulder Police Department since Boulder police detectives learned that Tiba might be in California," Boulder Police spokeswoman Kim Kobel wrote in the announcement of Tiba's arrest. "Tiba was taken into custody without incident."

7NEWS reported in March that Tiba was arrested for the February assault. At the time, police indicated the victim had met Tiba at the Walrus Saloon when she was out with friends on the night of Feb. 16.

Friends said they thought Tiba targeted the victim, even though she attempted to disengage herself from him several times during the evening.

The alleged assault occurred sometime between 2 a.m. and 10 a.m. the next day.

Tiba is currently being held in the San Francisco County Jail, pending extradition to Boulder.

Anyone with additional information about George Tiba is asked to contact Detective Scott Sloan at 303-441-4484.
