Assault and child enticement

Boulder police are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying suspects in two incidents: an assault and an attempted child enticement.

The assault occurred at 1:57 a.m. on July 17, near the intersection of 11th and Pearl streets.

Police said the victim was walking with a group of friends when he made a comment or gesture toward a woman who was walking with two other women and four men. One of the men in the woman’s group took offense to the victim’s comments, and an argument ensued. During the argument, the victim was punched once in the face. He was knocked down and lost consciousness.

The suspect is described as a white male in his early 20s, between 5’ 10’’ and 6 feet tall, approximately 205 pounds with a “thick build.” He had dark hair and possibly brown eyes. He was wearing a black or white “Affliction” brand shirt, with black or white writing and skull designs. He also had on beige shorts. He was wearing a black flat-brimmed hat.

The attempted child enticement occurred at about 4:45 a.m.

on July 28, in the area of Valmont and Airport roads. Police said an adult male driving an older, small, green, four-door sedan contacted a 15-year-old boy who was riding his bicycle. The driver asked the boy his age and his name and then offered to perform a sexual act. When the boy declined, the man offered to pay him. The boy declined again and the suspect drove away.

The suspect was described as 25 to 40 years old with dark skin. The boy described the man as being large, but not fat, with a “big, round head” that was balding. The driver had thick eyebrows, was clean-shaven and spoke with an unknown accent.
