Nicholas Foti, the University of Colorado student arrested last month after a 19-year-old Boulder woman accused him of sexually assaulting her in September, was charged Thursday with four felonies including sexual assault and unlawful sexual contact.

Foti, 21, appeared at the Boulder County Jail's courtroom Thursday with his attorneys after being released from the jail earlier in the week on $50,000 bond.

He was formally charged with one count of sexual assault, one count of unlawful sexual contact, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of first-degree criminal trespass.

The victim told police that Foti and another man came to her home in the early morning hours looking for one of her roommates, according to officials. She told police that Foti and the other man entered the residence without her permission, and when Foti realized the victim was home alone, he sexually assaulted her.

The victim said that Foti and the other man also vandalized her kitchen and smashed a bicycle before leaving, according to police.

Foti and his attorneys declined to comment Thursday.

He is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing in the case at 9 a.m. Feb. 4.

Foti was sentenced in August to 12 months of probation for his role in killing a raccoon in Boulder in 2011.
