JCSO Warns Hikers in Evergreen/Conifer of an At-Large Sexual Predator


The Jeffco Sheriff’s Office is warning the public of an unnamed, at-large sexual predator targeting female hikers in the Conifer and Evergreen area. Deputies have taken seven reports to-date, where a male suspect has confronted lone female hikers along trails in Flying J Ranch Park and one incident at Alderfer Three Sisters Park. The first report involving this suspect occurred on April 3rd, where a naked suspect approached a female hiker and touched her buttocks. The suspect fled the area but was not located by law enforcement. On June 13th, a naked suspect confronted a female victim and began masturbating. Each time, the suspect’s behavior has become more aggressive, contacting three different women in one day on July 18th, in which the suspect fondled two victims, masturbated, and engaged in sexual conversation. On July 24th, the suspect confronted a female hiker while masturbating, and then grabbed the victim and tried to rip off her clothing. 

The suspect is described as a white male, 20-30 years old, fit/athletic build with dark colored hair. He has carried a dark-colored backpack in some cases. In each incident, the suspect has run off into the woods, avoiding capture.

The sheriff’s office is seeking input from the public to help identify the suspect, as well as identify other potential victims. Please call 303-271-0211 to report any additional information.

Safety tips: 

  • Hike with a friend or family member.
  • Don’t walk off trail.
  • Take a phone with you.
  • Be aware of those around you.
  • Report anything suspicious immediately.
