Three men have been arrested after a woman said all three sexually assaulted her over the course of one night in August at a Boulder apartment.
Jesus Guerrero-Argumedo, 24; Adrian Garcia Ramirez, 21; and Eduardo Quezada, 27, have all been arrested on suspicion of two counts of sexual assault.
According to an arrest affidavit, a woman was drinking in downtown Boulder on Aug. 10 and began walking home from the bars early on Aug. 11. The woman ran into Guerrero-Argumedo, Quezada and Ramirez — none of whom she had previously met — while walking home and began to talk to them. The three invited her to continue drinking at an apartment in the 3100 block of Broadway, and she went along.
But once inside the apartment, the woman said Quezada kept lifting her skirt and slapping her on the butt even after she told him to stop. She said the three men then forced her down onto a couch and began to grope her.
The woman said Quezada then took her outside onto the balcony and forced her to perform oral sex.
The woman later tried to go into the bathroom to call for help, but said Guerrero-Argumedo followed her in and raped her while she was in the bathroom.
After this, the woman grabbed her now-charged phone and ordered an Uber. But she said as she was trying to leave the apartment, Ramirez raped her in the stairwell.
The woman was able to take the Uber to her boyfriend’s house and then went to get a sexual assault examination, which found injuries to her knees, neck and genitals, according to the affidavit.
The woman was able to pin the location of the apartment and also had phone numbers of two of the suspects. Using the address and phone information along with the descriptions provided by the woman, police were able to identify Guerrero-Argumedo, Ramirez and Quezada as suspects in the case.
The woman then picked photos of all three men out of three separate photo lineups.
In talking with police, Ramirez and Quezada both acknowledged having sex or oral sex with the woman but claimed the encounters were consensual.
Guerrero-Argumedo initially claimed he did not have sex with the woman. But when a detective informed Guerrero-Argumedo that the woman had gotten a SANE exam, he admitted he “probably” did have sex with the woman but said it would have been consensual, according to the affidavit.
Guerrero-Argumedo and Quezada were arrested Monday and had their first court appearances Tuesday. A judge gave both men $100,000 bonds and set them for a formal filing of charges Thursday.
Ramirez was arrested Tuesday, and has not had a first court appearance yet.
All three remain in custody at the Boulder County Jail.
