Police advise caution after sexual assault incidents in community

Fort Collins police are advising the community to exercise caution in response to five incidents of a male making unwanted advances and assaulting women in the city over the last several weeks, according to a press release.

In each of the five cases, the male made unwanted advances on the women, and in three of the incidents, the male physically assaulted the women. In each case, the woman was outside alone. None of the women received serious injuries, according to the press release.


The incidents have occurred approximately between Shields Street and Taft Hill Road and W. Prospect and W. Drake Roads and occurred in the early to late evening hours.

 A similar description was given for the perpetrator of each incident. The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, 30-35 years of age, approximately 5’7″ to 5’8″ tall, medium to slightly heavy build with short to shaved hair.

Police advise citizens to use caution, travel in groups when possible, carry a cell phone and be aware of surroundings.

 Anyone who comes in contact with the described suspect is asked to call 911 for immediate assistance. Anyone with knowledge of the past incidents or regarding the suspect is encouraged to call Detective Jim Lenderts at (970) 416-2949 or Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868.  Crime Stoppers may also be reached through their web site at
