Homeless man arrested after allegedly sexually assaulting CU library employee

BOULDER, Colo. — A suspect was arrested Thursday after a female employee at Norlin Library on the University of Colorado campus said she was sexually assaulted by a transient man, the campus police department said.

Just after 5:50 p.m., the University of Colorado Police Department announced it had arrested 23-year-old Lamin Njie.

The employee met Njie within the past week and exchanged contact information with him, but she was not expecting the man to stop by the library. He ran away after the incident.

Njie has a criminal history of identity theft, trespassing, forgery and resisting arrest, police said.
