ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — A sixth teenager suspected in the sexual assault of an Englewood High School freshman at a party has been arrested by Englewood Police.
Five other students were arrested last week for their alleged involvement in the assault on Jan. 25.
Police say the girl was at a party with 10 to 12 other people in the 3200 block of South Galapago Street where there was underage drinking and marijuana use. At least one parent was home at the time, according to an arrest affidavit.
Police believe the girl was sexually assaulted by six people and a medical examination revealed “significant trauma consistent with sexual assault,” according to a statement attached to one suspect’s arrest warrant.
Overnight Jan. 25 into Jan. 26, four males were arrested, ages 19, 16, 16 and 15. Another 15-year-old was arrested Wednesday. The sixth suspect was arrested Tuesday night in Colorado Springs, Englewood Police said. His age has not been made available.
Police identified the 19-year-old as Daylon Benjamin Hill of Englewood. He was charged with sexual assault while overcoming a victim’s will, child sex assault, sexual exploitation of a child, sexual exploitation of a child with intent to sell and/or publish and a violent sex crime.
Hill appeared in court Tuesday for a preliminary demand hearing. He’s being held in the Arapahoe County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
The other five could be charged as adults. They have not been identified because they are juveniles, who are students at Englewood public schools and some are classmates of the girl.
