WATCH: 30-year-old Colby Messer appeared in a Denver, Colorado courtroom Tuesday morning. He is charged with six counts of sexual assault in connection with a brutal attack in November
Colby James Messer walked out of a Denver, Colorado courtroom this morning after a brief appearance to schedule a preliminary hearing.
The 30-year-old Langford man is charged with six counts of sexual assault in connection with a violent incident involving a 27-year-old woman at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Denver in November.
“This is a sexual assault that not just involves multiple suspects but involves objects in a hotel room,” said Denver District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough said while speaking to media Monday.
Messer was arrested earlier this month when he returned to the United States with his girlfriend who he reportedly planned to propose to — their flight landed in Las Vegas, and officers boarded the plane and took Messer into custody.
There was no response Tuesday at Messer’s Langford home, which he co-owns with a woman.
There are three other suspects in the case, all men who sources tell CHEK news went to Alberni District Secondary School.
Because those men have not been charged with anything, United States authorities won’t release their identities, but two of them are 30-years-old and the third is 24-years-old.
Messer’s father paid a $300,000 cash bond for his son’s release.
He surrendered his passport and must remain in Denver wearing a tracking device.
His preliminary hearing is set for June 2nd.
