‘Event’ Took Place At Boulder Gas Station, But Was It A Crime?

BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – Alarming calls were made to 911 at a Circle K gas station in Boulder Monday night, but police say they are still working to determine if a crime took place.

Two different people called 911 at approximately 10 p.m. Monday to report a woman had been taken against her will at the gas station, located at 15th and Canyon.

“One witness observed a female being grabbed and put into a van,” Boulder Detective Sgt. Tom Trujillo told CBS4.

They say she screamed as she was shoved into a white van with a missing middle seat and tinted windows.

Other witnesses have described two men as suspects.

The driver was a white man with a beard and a second man was described as being Hispanic, 5-foot-6, approximately 30, with a dark jacket, jeans and white New Balance tennis shoes.

The woman was described as being about 35 with curly blonde or brown hair, a very thin build and with a baby blue winter coat and a tan purse with large buckles.

The woman might be homeless.

“The witness that gave us that information does live on the street part time — is a transient person part time. That was his words, that she appeared to be a street person,” Trujillo said.

The last information available in the case is a partial Colorado license plate: 868-GY?

While a lot of details are out there, police say no one has been reported missing.

“We believe an event occurred. We’re just trying to sort out what that event was,” Trujillo said.
