BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. – Deputies have released a sketch of a suspect accused of sexually assaulting a woman on Walker Loop Trail in late July.

On July 28, a woman reported that she had been hiking alone on the Walker Loop Trail off Flagstaff Road in Boulder County, just east of the Gross Reservoir, when she was approached by a man who sexually assaulted her, according to the sheriff's office.

The woman told deputies she was able to get away from the suspect after fighting him off.

The woman described the man as Caucasian, bald, in his 40s and “tall and thin, yet muscular," according to the sheriff's office. She said he was wearing a mask at the time.

In a news release Thursday, the sheriff’s office said the man was believed to be over 6-feet tall and weigh over 225 pounds.

They ask anyone who may have been hiking in the area or witnessed anything suspicious, to please contact Detective Merriam at (303) 579-3611 or
