Police arrested 30-year old Cameron Washington of Denver. 

On Nov. 30, Aurora Police Detectives hand delivered several pieces of evidence to the Colorado Bureau of Investigations to be tested and analyzed. CBI personnel immediately began testing these items, in order of priority, on the same date and worked through the weekend in an effort to identify the suspect.

Late Monday afternoon, the CBI notified Aurora Police that one of the items tested resulted in a DNA match. This was linked to Washington, since his DNA was already on file because of a previous felony conviction.

Once the suspect had been identified, the Gang Intervention Unit and Fugitive Apprehension and Surveillance Team were immediately called-out so that they could search for Washington. In a matter of a couple of hours, Washington was located and arrested at his home in Denver. 

After a lengthy interview with investigators from the Sex Crimes Unit, police are confident Washington is responsible for all three incidents. Washington is being held in the Arapahoe County Jail on charges of first-degree sexual assault, first-degree burglary, felony menacing and theft.
