Police seeking suspect accused in sex assault

The Durango Police Department is asking for help in identifying a man accused of sexual assault.

A woman was assaulted Tuesday in the area of 30th Street. The exact address is not being given to protect the victim’s identity.

It is believed that the perpetrator is an adult man who entered the residence through an unlocked door or window.

Police have received reports in recent weeks of windows in the same neighborhood being tampered with. If area residents have seen anyone in a neighbor’s yard or have had property moved, damaged or stolen, police want to know about it.

Police urge residents to lock windows and doors and report any suspicious activity.

Information may be given to Sgt. Deck Shaline at 375-4729 or Crimestoppers at 247-1112.
