Denver Police capture fugitive child sex offender, Bronson McDowell, in northeast Denver

DENVER - Police arrested a fugitive child sex offender in northeast Denver on Friday night.

The arrest came a day after Denver police issued a crime alert for Bronson Terrence McDowell, 43, a registered sex offender accused of committing a new offense.

Police said McDowell had been evading law enforcement for more than a week. He was arrested on a warrant for sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.

In the crime alert, police said, "There is reason to believe there are additional victims who have not yet come forward."

McDowell was registered as a sex offender with the Aurora Police Department as a "Transient Person," which means he likely did 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 He was initially sentenced to four years in community corrections, but that sentence was revoked for probation violations and he was re-sentenced to the Colorado Department of Corrections.
