“The photos were so good and crystal clear that we knew someone would see those pictures and ‘Hey, I know who that person is.’ In this case, he decided instead of waiting for that option, to turn himself in,” said Denver Police Detective John White.

Investigators said he assaulted the victim near an elevator to a parking garage.

The suspect turned himself in to authorities on Aug. 9 at about 11:55 p.m. He is being held for investigation of assault and attempted sexual assault.
