A Vancouver Island man faces multiple counts of sexual assault in Denver.
Colby James Messer, 30, was charged with the brutal sexual assault of a 27-year-old woman last November at a Denver hotel according to a press release from the Denver DA.
The release goes on to say that Messer was visiting Denver with several friends, also from Canada, in mid-November.
The charges allege that Messer met the victim at a Denver bar, and took her back to the hotel room he was sharing with his friends, where she was repeatedly sexually assaulted.
The Denver police investigation into the assault identified several suspects, all of whom had returned to Canada.
Court documents refer to four men including Messer. On their B.C. driver’s licenses, two list their residences in Victoria and the other two in Port Alberni.
They arrived in Denver on a flight from Vancouver on November 14, 2015 and returned two days later.
Messer was arrested when he returned to the United States earlier this month.
He was taken into custody in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 4, 2016, waived extradition and arrived in Denver last Tuesday.
None of the allegations against have been proven in court.
The investigation continues.
