Boulder suspect arrested in Unlawful Sexual Contact case
Sixty-four-year-old Laureano Sifuentes (DOB 11/14/1947) has been arrested on suspicion of one charge of Unlawful Sexual Contact. Sifuentes was arrested by Longmont police on a Boulder warrant on the evening of Feb. 8. Sifuentes posted bond yesterday morning, Feb. 9.
Detectives have been investigating Sifuentes since November 2011, when a female victim reported that Sifuentes had touched her inappropriately during a meeting that he had scheduled at a Boulder hotel.
Sifuentes was associated with a local Alcoholics Anonymous group. He persuaded at least two women that he would help them through one of the AA steps, which is a private disclosure of information. That particular step is done one-on-one, usually in a private setting.
Sifuentes arranged a meeting at a hotel in Boulder and the victim, along with another female in the AA group, agreed to attend.
The victim said that during their meeting, Sifuentes touched her sexually. She fled the hotel and called to have someone pick her up at another location, away from Sifuentes. The other woman did not witness what allegedly occurred, but did observe the victim fleeing the hotel.
