The CU Police Department has arrested 29-year-old Nathan Wood for charges of sexual assault, trespassing, burglary, and theft, regarding incidents of an unfamiliar man entering women’s bathrooms and stealing clothing and towels in Williams Village.
Wood was charged first with sexual assault after an incident involving a female student on Sunday night, in which Wood drove back to her hall in Will Vill before taking her back to her room, according to a CUPD press release.
“The female fell asleep and later awoke to find Wood assaulting her,” according to the statement.
The student called the police, who then charged Wood in connection to the bathroom incidents occurring in the Stearns West tower of Will Vill after matching his description from reports.
CUPD patrolled the premises throughout the morning, and a safety alert was issued to students living in Will Vill at around the same time as Wood’s arrest at 9:30 a.m.
CUPD is still investigating the case.
“This case remains under investigation as officers and detectives from the CU police department continue to speak with witnesses and conduct additional follow-up,” said Robert Axmacher, acting CUPD commander. “Once this follow-up is complete, we will be able to provide more details about the case.”
