Boulder, Colo. — Police are on the lookout for a college-aged suspect in Boulder’s Goss Grove neighborhood after a woman reported waking up in her bed to a man touching her.

On Friday just after 3 a.m., Boulder police responded to a report of an unlawful sexual contact at a home in the 1800 block of 22nd Street, just north of the University of Colorado Boulder campus. 

A woman was asleep in her bed when she woke up at 2:39 a.m. to a man touching her outside her underwear, according to Boulder police. When she confronted the man, her boyfriend, who was sleeping next to her, woke up and chased him out of the home.

Police have determined there was no forced entry into the home.

The suspect is described as a college-aged white male, about six feet tall with brown hair, a full beard and glasses, Boulder police said.

The department increased its number of patrol officers in the Goss Grove neighborhood Friday. 

Anyone with information on this case is encouraged to call Det. Weisbach at 303-441-4474.
