Police told CBS4 that several Crime Stoppers tips were received about the suspect and a warrant was drawn up when it was discovered that he was already in custody for another incident.

The suspect is a juvenile so police have not released his name or mug shot. He was arrested on Dec. 5 for felony menacing with a weapon. He remains in custody for investigation of aggravated assault in connection to the incidents on the Auraria campus.
