According to a Boulder PD press release, on Saturday Oct. 29 around the hours of 4 a.m. and 5 a.m., three trespassing crimes were reported with a the suspect described matching all three descriptions.
“The suspect entered through unlocked front doors of all three residences,” the press release states. “The suspect’s movement within bedroom areas awakened each of the female victims.”
The suspect was described in the press release as a white male, in his mid-20s, between 5’8”-5’10”, medium build, short light brown “buzz cut” hair style, no facial hair or glasses, and wearing a dark colored jacket and blue jean pants.
Commander Robert Axmacher, CUPD Spokesperson, said that the Clery Act, which requires colleges and universities to disclose information about crimes on and around their campuses, would be the reason why they would warn students if this incident is suspected to be a threat on campus.
“Under the Clery act, with an on-going threat to the campus itself we would release specific notifications text alert and emails,” Axmacher said. “The one on the Hill was far enough away from campus at this point that under the Clery act we wouldn’t put out a timely warning.”
Anyone with information about this case is urged to call Boulder Police Department at at (303) 441-3333 and can call Boulder County Crime Stoppers at (800)-222-TIPS if they wish to remain anonymous.

Correction: This story has been changed from its original version. In the original version, published Oct. 31 at 12pm, Commander Axmacher was misquoted as saying the Hill is far enough from campus that the Clery act would not put out a timely warrant, in reality, Commander Axmacher said the the Clery act would not put out a timely warning. Also “Clery” was misspelled in Axmacher’s quote.
