The CU Police Department arrested a suspect Friday evening for the recent intrusion incidents that took place Feb. 16 and 17 in CU residence halls.
According to a CUPD news release, a white male was reported to have entered several residence halls over the span of two nights asking for a place to “crash.” When allowed inside, the suspect allegedly fondled one victim in her bed and tried to kiss another.
According to the arrest warrant, the suspect has been charged with 10 counts of second-degree burglary, two counts of unlawful sexual contact and one count of physical harassment.
As of Saturday morning, the suspect had not posted the warrant-ordered $2,500 to get out of jail.
CUPD issued an exclusion order banning the suspect from campus property.
The suspect has also been prohibited from contact with the victims and witnesses of the crimes.
Police have refused to provide identifying information about the suspect in attempt to protect the investigation.
“The release of the suspect name and photo could potentially taint those further investigative processes,” Joe Roy, chief of CUPD, said in a news release Saturday.
Roy requested that the media withhold information about the suspect until the investigation has developed further.
“This information will be released to the public as soon as possible, when the investigative steps have been completed,” Roy said.
According to the news release, additional victims and witnesses have yet to be contacted as part of the ongoing investigation.
