Police investigating sexual assault
 
Boulder police are investigating an alleged sexual assault that was reported to have happened in the 1100 block of 9th St. on Saturday, July 7, 2012 at approximately 3:29 a.m.
 
The victim told police that she was walking home alone when she was grabbed from behind and attacked by an unknown male. She says the male sexually assaulted her, but that the attacker fled after she screamed and fought with him.
 
She went to a nearby home and asked for help. The resident at that home told officers that he’d heard someone scream, which woke him up. He went outside to investigate and saw the victim outside the residence, and then called police.
 
The victim could not describe her attacker, so police cannot provide a description.
 
The case number is 12-9007 and is under investigation.
