Boulder police: Man assaults woman as boyfriend sleeps near her

BOULDER, Colo. -- A woman was awoken to a man touching her outside of her underwear early Friday morning, the Boulder Police Department said.

The woman was sleeping in her bed at home in the 1800 block of 22nd Street in the Goss Grove neighborhood when she awoke about 2:40 a.m. to the man touching her, police said.

The woman's boyfriend, who was sleeping in the bed next to her, woke up and chased the man out of the house. Police said there was no forced entry to the residence.

Women in the area said they are on edge.

"That's crazy. I don't even know what to say. ... We lock our doors," one person said.

The suspect is described as a college-aged white male, about 6-foot with brown hair, a full beard and glasses.

Police have increased patrols in and around the Goss Grove neighborhood.
