Denver police ask for public's help in finding fugitive child sex offender Bronson McDowell

McDowell a suspect in new child sexual assault

DENVER - Denver Police are asking the public to help them find a fugitive sex offender who has been identified as a suspect in a new child sexual assault case.

In a Crime Alert issued Thursday, police said Bronson Terrence McDowell, 43, is a suspect in a 2014 child sexual assault case, and "there is reason to believe there are additional victims who have not yet come forward."

"He has been evading law enforcement for over a week at this point," police said.

McDowell has registered as a sex offender with the Aurora Police Department as a "Transient Person," which means he likely does not have a fixed address.

"McDowell also is required to receive medical attention for kidney disease and regularly visits programs that provide medical treatment for the homeless," Denver police said.

McDowell was required to register as a sex offender in 1995 after he pleaded guilty to felony sexual assault on a child in Arapahoe County, according to court records. He was initially sentenced to four years in community corrections, but that sentenced was revoked for probation violations and he was re-sentenced to the Colorado Department of Corrections.

Denver police ask anyone with information on McDowell's whereabouts to call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. You can also text 274637 (CRIMES), enter the title DMCS and your message. Callers can remain anonymous and earn a reward of up to $2,000.
