Police in Loveland have released footage of an attack in July and are asking the public to help identify the man in the video, according to a news release Tuesday.
With consent of the victim, Loveland Police investigators released the video with the hope of someone recognizing the man, who allegedly sexually assaulted one woman and may have been following another, through his mannerisms, shirt or any other information in the footage.
Officers responded at 12:34 a.m. on July 2 to the 300 block of North Cleveland Avenue in Loveland after a report of a suspicious man. Authorities say a woman called and said a man had followed her on foot and in a vehicle, according to news release, though she was able to evade him. Police searched for the man and his vehicle — described as a dark, mid-sized SUV — but were unable to locate either.
Later that night, at approximately 2:47 a.m., police responded to a report of a sexual assault at 1365 West 29th street, about three miles north and west from the location of the previous call. A woman reported being physically and sexually assaulted by a lone male attacker, and when she fought back, the man disengaged, ran to a vehicle that matched the description of the SUV involved in the previous incident and left.
According to the release, the man was described as a 6-foot, Caucasian male in this late 20s with a thick build and short, light-brown hair.
Those who have any information information related to either of the above described incidents are asked to call Detective Denise Dean at 970-962-2258.
