Boulder police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man who made inappropriate comments to three girls and then threatened one of their parents with sexual violence at a park early Sunday afternoon.

The man approached the girls, ages 9, 10 and 12, at Park East Park on Mohawk Drive shortly before 3 p.m., according to a news release from Boulder police. He made inappropriate comments to them about their bodies, the release says, before the girls biked away and told a parent.

The parent returned to the park to confront the man. According to the news release, the man became aggressive and threatened sexual violence against the parent, adding that he would also burn down the neighborhood.

Police have increased patrols in the area in response to the incident.

Those with additional information can call Detective Kara Wills at 303-441-3482. People can also call Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or go to crimeshurt.com to provide information anonymously.
