KUSA - A convicted sex offender who escaped from Denver Police earlier this month is now accused of sexually assaulting two women in Boulder while he was on the run.
Eugene Martinez returned to jail Saturday night.
A 23-year old woman called Boulder police Saturday morning - several hours after she awoke to find a man leaving with her purse.
Two other women in the home told police they may have been sexually assaulted.
Police tracked the 23-year old's cell phone, which was in her purse, to a transient camp on Grandview Avenue.
An officer found a man matching the description the women gave them.
Police say he tried to escape and tried to assault the officer who arrested him.
They've since identified him as Eugene Martinez.
"A sex offender broke into our house. It's just really horrible, I wish it wouldn't have happened," said Molly McMahon, who lives in the house.
On Saturday night, as best as the roommates can tell, Martinez opened their unlocked door. He went up to a bedroom where two women were sleeping in the same room.
"I just feel so bad for my roommate. If that was me, I would be traumatized," McMahon said.
Boulder police are looking into whether he may be involved in another sex assault case a week ago.
"He is a very dangerous individual. He has a long history of sexual assault," Boulder Police Department spokesperson Kim Kobel said. "He is in jail right now and that's where he needs to be."
Boulder police are asking anyone with information - or who believes they may be a victim - to call Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
Denver Police say Martinez escaped their custody on October 9.
He was handcuffed to a bench inside police headquarters near 13th and Cherokee downtown.
He somehow slipped out of the cuffs and walked past several officers.
He was wanted for failing to register as a sexual offender.
He has a history of sexual assault in Pueblo and Denver dating back to 1994.
