The Collegian would like to inform its readers that the content in this article may trigger those affected by sexual assault.

After multiple incidents this autumn, a seventh woman was physically assaulted Wednesday, according to a Larimer County Sheriff press release.

The woman was allegedly assaulted while riding her bicycle along the Highway 1 corridor north of Fort Collins. She did not know the suspect, and described him as a Hispanic male in his 30s with a stocky to muscular build, a shaved head or very short hair and a mustache and soul patch. The man fled the scene in an older white or light colored SUV with faded wood grain paneling, or two-tone paint on the sides.

The Sheriff’s Office investigators stated that the incident is related to six previous assaults in the Fort Collins area over the last six weeks, due to similarities in description of the alleged assailant.

In each attack, the woman was reported to be outside and alone between the hours of 7 p.m. and midnight.

The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office investigators are working closely with Fort Collins police to share information about the cases to coordinate resources and address the public safety concern.

Anyone who comes in contact with the described suspect is asked to call 911 for immediate assistance. Anyone with knowledge of the past incidents regarding the suspect is encouraged to call Detective Ben Hess at 970-498-5173 or Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868.  Crime Stoppers may also be reached through their web site at www.stopcriminals.org.
