DENVER (CBS4) – A Denver jury has found a man guilty of sexually assaulting a woman at gunpoint near Sloan’s Lake in March 2011.
According to Lynn Kimbrough with the district attorney’s office, Damon Newman, 45, was convicted on one count of sexual assault with a weapon.
“In March 2011, a woman was walking near Sloan’s Lake in the early morning hours when she was approached by a man with a small silver revolver. Newman held the victim at gunpoint and sexually assaulted her before fleeing on foot,” Kimbrough said in a statement.
Kimbrough said DNA led to Newman’s arrest in October 2015.
“He had been arrested in California, for a misdemeanor, and his DNA was added to the CODIS database.”
Newman remains in custody. He’s scheduled for sentencing on October 14.
