Steamboat Springs man arrested for rape
Steamboat Springs police arrested a 44-year-old Steamboat man for felony sex assault and menacing shortly after midnight Sunday morning.
A woman called police Saturday evening after confiding in a friend to report she had been raped by an acquaintance a couple days earlier, said police Sgt. Nick Bosick. The woman told police the man threatened her with a firearm, telling her he would shoot her unless she had sex with him. Advocates Against Battering and Abuse counseled the victim.
Police obtained arrest and search warrants Saturday night before confronting the man at his Steamboat apartment. The man had to be physically taken down, Bosick said. The man had a knife on him, but he did not reach for it.
After the man was in custody, police collected evidence. They also found drug paraphernalia and various firearms, including assault rifles.
