GREELEY, Colo. – Two Greeley men are in jail following a months-long investigation into alleged human trafficking, sex assault, stalking and domestic violence.

Noman Boroumand, 45, and Fares Al Rashed, 38, both of Greeley, were arrested Thursday and Friday following indictments from a Weld County grand jury.

Greeley police began investigating the two men in December 2016 and interviewed a number of witnesses and victims.

According to the indictment, Boroumand had sex with women against their will on several occasions and also forced the women to have sex with Al Farhed, after which Al Farhed would give the women money. Bouroumand also followed, threatened and physically beat his victims, the indictment states.

Boroumand faces more than two dozen charges, ranging from human trafficking to retaliation and child abuse.

Al Rashed is charged with several counts of human trafficking and sexual assault. Both men are lodged in the Weld County Jail.

Detectives believe there may be more victims associated with this case. Anyone with information should contact Detective Elizabeth Finch at 970-350-9682, Detective Wendy Steward at 970-350-9692 or Detective Erin Gooch at 970-351-5352.
