BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – The Boulder Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating other possible victims of a man accused of committing sexual assaults over the past 15 years.
Police say Boulder Ice Cream co-owner Scott Roy is accused of sexually assaulting a specific group of employees.
“For more than a year our investigators have been working diligently on a case that involves multiple women that are Spanish-speaking only, that have a questionable work status,” said Shannon Cordingly, a spokesperson for Boulder police.
The 54-year-old was arrested Thursday on allegations of unlawful sexual contact and harassment.
Officers believe the abuse occurred at Boulder Ice Cream, and possibly at a local farmer’s market.
“The women provided their real names, however, they provided fake Social Security numbers,” Cordingly said. “They were never asked to fill out any of the paper work that you fill out.”
After years of abuse, Boulder police says the women went to police in 2015.
“The employer then came back and required them to produce the documents, which of course, they did not have, and they ended up resigning,” Cordingly said.
Now they’re hoping more victims come forward.
“We don’t care what your immigration status is, we are here to serve and protect all members of this community,” Cordingly said.
Boulder police is asking possible victims, or anyone with information, to contact Ruth Christopher, a Spanish-speaking detective, at (303) 441-1850.
