DENVER — A suspect in a 2012 sexual assault was arrested last week when he was stopped for jaywalking, Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey announced Tuesday.

Gregory Carter, 46, allegedly assaulted a 23-year-old woman in an alley near Gilpin and Williams streets in late July of 2012, the DA’s Office said. Carter was identified as a suspect by a DNA profile in 2013, but wasn’t located until last week, when he was stopped for jaywalking by a Denver police officer.

Carter was being held on $50,000 bond.  He is scheduled to appear in court on July 31 to answer two charges of sexual assault.

    Good thing for jaywalking stops. I say this somewhat in jest, but I do see many stupid people jaywalking senselessly, which is usually what attracts the eyes of the cops. Senselessly jaywalking is jaywalking within 50 feet of the crosswalk during heavy traffic from both directions. I’ve seen it and couldn’t believe my eyes.
