DENVER — A man convicted of sexual assault in Washington State and Colorado is on the run, and the U.S. Marshals Service believes he may still be in Colorado.

Matthew Caulk, 46, was reported absconded from a Denver halfway house on Feb. 15. He was living at the halfway house while completing a sentence for sexual assault on a minor in Colorado.

It’s not Caulk’s first conviction for a similar crime.

Caulk was initially convicted of sexual assault in Washington and ordered to register as a sex offender. But in 2007, while unregistered and on the run in Colorado, he committed another sexual assault on a minor in Lakewood, according to the U.S. Marshals.

Caulk was located in May 2010 after being featured on “America’s Most Wanted” and in local media outlets. He was convicted of sexual assault and received both federal and state sentences.

The news of Caulk’s disappearance last week has both the U.S. Marshals and Metro Denver Crime Stoppers on heightened alert.

“We want the public to be aware and help us capture this violent predator before he strikes again.” U.S. Marshal John Kammerzell said.  “Public safety is always our primary concern.”

Anyone with information on Caulk’s whereabouts is being urged to contact the U.S. Marshals at 1-877-926-8332, or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.

A reward of up to $2,500 is being offered for information leading directly to his arrest.
