ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. — A man who was charged with sexual assault on a child did not show up for his sentencing this week, and authorities now have a warrant for his arrest. 

The Adams County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help locating a man who was out on bond awaiting a sentence for charges including sexual assault on a child and child abuse with serious bodily injury.  

Michael Baltazar, 26, did not come to his sentencing hearing Tuesday. The sheriff's office received a notification that he had been tampering with his GPS ankle monitor, which he had been issued as a condition of the bond and as part of the supervised release program. 

Baltazar is a white man, standing about 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing about 180 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes. 

He was last in the area of Highway 52 and County Road 53 in Keenesburg. 

He now has warrants for his arrest, with a bond set at $115,000. 

Anybody with information on his whereabouts is encouraged to call 911 or the Adams County Sheriff’s Office at 303-288-1535.
