DENVER — Denver Police captured a child sexual assault suspect Friday night in northeast Denver after he had eluded them for about a week.

On Thursday, the Denver Police Department said 44-year-old Bronson McDowell was a suspect in a sexual assault on a child that happened earlier this year.

McDowell is registered as a sex offender from a 1994 child sexual assault case in Arapahoe County.

Police also said he is also registered as a homeless person with the Aurora Police Department.

Detectives said they have reason to believe there are other victims who have yet to come forward.
