Kuel Simon Khor

A man is facing sexual assault charges after he reportedly raped a woman at a Boulder house earlier this month.

Kuel Simon Khor, 25, was arrested Saturday afternoon on suspicion of two counts of sexual assault, according to an arrest affidavit.

According to that arrest affidavit, a woman told police she was hanging out with friends in downtown Boulder on July 18. The woman said Khor, a friend of a friend, was also in the group and that she had known him for about two years.

After last call later that night, some people in the group decided to go to a house to continue to party. At about 5:30 a.m., the woman got permission from one of the residents of the home to sleep in a bedroom.

The woman told police she woke up to Khor sexually assaulting her. She told him to get off, but he continued to try to “spoon” her. The woman was able to get out from under Khor and ran out of the room. She told someone else in the house, who kicked Khor out, according to the affidavit.

The woman went with friends to get a sexual assault examination at Boulder Community Health’s Foothills Hospital.

While at the hospital, the woman said Khor tried to call the woman and other people she knew, saying “I am so sorry… I lost it and please call me. I’m freaking out.”

Mutual friends confronted Khor on July 20 and recorded the conversation in which Khor said, “I think I halfway (fell) asleep. And the next thing I realize is, like, I’m literally, like, on top of (the woman) at some point and then I get off, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God.’”

According to the affidavit, Khor denied any sexual penetration but did admit to touching the woman while she was asleep.

Khor also reportedly blamed his behavior on the fact that he was drunk and had used cocaine, and said he had slept with the woman before and so thought everything was “normal.”

Khor also had outstanding warrants for failure to appear on two Boulder County cases and has previous arrests for criminal mischief, obstruction, contempt of court, DUI and traffic violations in Colorado and Nebraska.

Khor is being held at the Boulder County Jail without bond.
