Boulder Police seek help identifying man in possible sexual assault on woman inside Safeway store

BOULDER, Colo. - Police in Boulder are asking for the public's help to identify a man who they is wanted on suspicion of sexually assaulting a woman inside a Safeway store.

On June 4, at around 8:25 p.m., officers were called to the Safeway at 3325 28th Street after a woman said a man attacked her while she was shopping for groceries.

The woman told police that she was approached by an unidentified man as she was heading for the check-out stand. The man asked her if she knew where items were located. When she gave him directions he did not leave.

According to police, the man then stated, "What would you do if I kissed you right now?" and he grabbed the back of her neck in an attempt to pull her closer to him. She was able to push the suspect away and noticed he had a GoPro style camera in his right hand and was pointing it up at her.
