Composite sketch of Boulder sexual assault suspect

BOULDER, Colo. — The Boulder Police Department released a composite sketch Saturday of a sexual assault suspect from an incident that happened early Friday morning.

BPD says around 4:30 a.m. Friday, a female awoke to a man in her bed.

“The victim woke up to a man in her bed that was attempting to have sex with her,” police said in a statement Friday.

“That scares me. My heart is pounding,” one CU student said.

The incident happened on the 1200 block of College Avenue.

Boulder police say the suspect is a light-skinned black male. He was wearing a white T-shirt with an unknown logo and khaki pants during the alleged assault.

FOX31 talked to the victim's friend who said, "Physically she’s OK, yeah, mentally, I’m going to go check on her.”

Investigators are working with the victim to create a composite sketch of the suspect.

BPD said the suspect is believed to have entered the apartment through an unlocked door.

Anyone who has information on the case should call Detective Sergeant Jim MacPherson at 303-441-1997. Tips can also be made anonymously to Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

A cash reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for tips that lead to an arrest and filing of charges.
