Boulder police were called to the 900 block of University Avenue just after 5 a.m. on Saturday morning, Oct. 12, 2013, after a female resident reported that she had been sexually assaulted by an unknown male.
The victim is a 22-year-old female. The assault took place inside her residence. The victim confronted the male, who ran from the residence in an unknown direction.
The victim wasn’t able to provide a detailed description of the suspect. She described him as 5’6” to 5’8” tall, with a “smaller” build and a “narrow” face. He was wearing dark-colored clothing that included some type of workout jacket, sweatshirt or rain jacket.
There were no signs of forced entry into the home, and the roommates say the residence may have been left unlocked.

In the wake of historic rain and flooding, Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) has begun re-opening many area trails and will post updates on newly opened trails at http://bit.ly/15msF85.
Today, OSMP opened the following trails:
- Wonderland Lake Loop
- East Boulder Trail – Gunbarrel Farm
- East Boulder Trail – Teller Farm (Valmont to Arapahoe)
- Chautauqua – Baseline Trail
- Chautauqua – Bluebell/Baird
Newly opened trails will be accessible from dawn to dusk, and visitors must remain on-trail because of safety risks. Trails will be closed at night because of hazards not visible in the dark. All other OSMP trails not listed athttp://bit.ly/15msF85 remain closed under an emergency order.
There are some potential safety risks on re-opened trails. These may include rocky and gullied terrain, as well as other potential hazards associated with a major flood event. OSMP stresses that the re-opened trails are substantially different from pre-flood conditions.

After historic rain and flooding that caused extensive damage to trails, trailheads and natural resources, the Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) is announcing that it will open a limited number of trails in Chautauqua on Saturday, Sept. 21.
OSMP anticipates opening up more trails within the week. However, many trails in the system will require substantial rebuilding, and OSMP asks for the public’s patience as the department rebuilds and restores those trails.
Chautauqua trails that will be opened on Saturday are:
· A portion of Chautauqua trail.
· Bluebell Road to the shelter.
· Bluebell Spur
· Bluebell Mesa.
· A portion of the Ski Jump trail.
Trails will be opened from dawn to dusk on-trail only because of existing safety risks. Trails will be closed at night because of hazards not visible in the dark. All other OSMP trails remained closed under an emergency order.
“We have worked as hard as possible in the days after the storm to assess damage and safety dangers,” said Mike Patton, director of the City of Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks department. “We hope to re-open more trails in the next week.”
There are some potential safety risks on trails slated to be re-opened. Current risks on the trails may include rocky and gullied terrain, as well as other potential hazards associated with a major flood event. OSMP stresses that re-opened trails will not be of the same quality residents have seen in the past.
“We understand that the public is anxious to get out on the trails,” Patton said. “We know that OSMP is a place where visitors go to reduce stress. We want to express our deep appreciation for our visitors’ patience at this time.”
Patton also wanted to express his gratitude for the outpouring of offers to help rebuild trails, and restore natural areas. OSMP staff is prioritizing volunteer projects. Volunteer opportunities will be posted at osmp.org as soon as projects are identified.
In the wake of torrential rain and flooding, the City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) department requests that citizens respect an emergency order and stay off all OSMP properties. The flooding has caused rockslides and mudslides, which have led to the destabilized bridges and other significant hazards.
Many trees have had their roots compromised, and there is a danger they may come down suddenly. Rocks have also been tumbling down hillsides and they could cause serious injury. Staff needs time to identify and mitigate these dangerous situations.
“Teams that normally assist injured people on OSMP are busy with search and rescue effort around the county,” said Joe Reale, OSMP’s ranger supervisor. “First responder resources are limited at this time.”
OSMP staff members are working hard at assessing the damage. OSMP will reopen areas of the system when it is determined that areas are safe and that users will not be causing additional resource damage.
City Manager Jane Brautigam issued an emergency order Thursday (Sept. 12) afternoon that closed all OSMP properties in response to rain and flooding that has caused these safety concerns. The order is in effect until further notice.

For Sunday there will be periods of rain along with a few thunderstorms in the mountains and in and near the foothills.
