DENVER — An RTD security guard was arrested for allegedly assaulting a man inside a bathroom at Union Station.

James Hunter, 34, was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of second-degree assault. 

According to an arrest warrant, the victim contacted police on May 17 about the alleged assault that occurred on April 20.

The victim told police he was taken into the men’s restroom by Hunter and assaulted after the two exchanged words. 

The victim told police he woke up several days after the attack with no knowledge of how he got home. 

According to the arrest warrant, Hunter told colleagues as was leaving the restroom after the alleged attack that “someone might want to call EMS, there’s a guy on the ground in there.”

Hunter is employed by Allied Universal. 

RTD is working with DPD on this incident, which continues to be an open investigation. The agency released the following statement:

RTD is extremely concerned about the alleged actions by the Allied Universal employee.  RTD has fully cooperated with police in their investigation. We are holding Allied Universal accountable for the absolutely unacceptable actions alleged of their employee, which obviously would not have followed established policies and procedures.  The allegations against the Allied officer are reprehensible and in no way reflect the attitude, mission, policies, practices, or values of RTD.  In no way does RTD accept, approve or sanction any such behavior.
