BOULDER, Colo. — Detectives are seeking the public’s help in locating other possible victims of a man accused of committing sexual assaults in Boulder over the past 15 years, the Boulder Police Department said Friday.

On Thursday night, police took Scott Roy into custody on charges of unlawful sexual contact and harassment.

The investigation into Roy began in late 2015, when two of his alleged victims contacted police to report being sexually assaulted by their former boss.

Both women were hired to work on the production line at Boulder Ice Cream and at the Boulder Farmer’s Markets; they were Spanish-speaking and had a compromised work status.

When the women were hired, they used their real name and a false Social Security number. They were never required to fill out any government forms such as an I-9.

In late 2015, the company became aware of the ongoing abuse allegations and spoke to one of the victims.

Days later, two of the victims were told they needed to address their work eligibility and submit a completed I-9 form with supporting documentation within three days.

Unable to produce work eligibility, both victims submitted resignation letters. Boulder Ice Cream has operated at multiple locations throughout Boulder over the past 15 years and for a short time operated in Louisville under Fresca Foods.

The department is working with the Boulder District Attorney’s Office and understands that victims with a compromised work status might feel reluctant to contact police.

The Boulder Police Department and the Boulder District Attorney’s Office are committed to providing equal protection and quality service to all members of our community, regardless of their immigration status.

Because of the statute of limitations, some of these alleged felony crimes may no longer be chargeable offenses.
