Samuel Fikadu, an immigrant from Eritrea, is in the Jefferson County Detention Center after his arrest Friday.
He appeared before a judge Monday on felony charges of sexual assault where a bond was set.
As 9NEWS has previously reported, a woman told police Fikadu drove her to her home on Sheridan Boulevard and 20th Avenue, followed her inside and sexually assaulted her last Thursday.
According to an arrest affidavit, Fikadu "came at" the victim and tried to kiss her. She replied "no please, no please," but Fikadu continued the alleged assault.

"Actually, I don't know what happened," said Fikadu's wife, Miheret Kahsay, outside of the courtroom where her husband appeared for video advisement. "I hope the person who made the allegations has the support of family and friends. I trust the police. They will find the truth."
Kahsay told 9NEWS the couple has been married since 2002 and have two daughters ages 7 and 5.
"So hard, I'm so frustrated," she said of the family experience the last several days. "I'm glad I know my husband. He's very nice and he wouldn't do that. The truth will come out and he will be free. I say thank you God."
The couple moved to the U.S. from Eritrea for a better opportunity. Eritrea is a country in the Horn of Africa, near Sudan and Ethiopia.
Kahsay says Fikadu has worked for Freedom Cab for three years. 9NEWS made calls and emails requesting comment from the company, but they were not returned.
Fikadu had previously worked at a Hyatt Regency for two years starting 2005. He also worked at a Greeley beef company and 7-Eleven.
Fikadu supports his family and the wife's elderly parents who live with them.
A family neighbor, Aaron Brown, who came to help them through the court process, says their children play and go to school together.
"I've never gotten even the slightest sense that he's anything but a very kind and generous and gentle and sweet man," Brown told 9NEWS. "I don't know what this is all about. But I hope that it works out well. This is very hard on the family right now. I just want to make sure they have the support they need."
9NEWS has reached out to the friend of the woman who says she was assaulted by Fikadu. The friend told 9NEWS the victim has been advised against talking to the media. 9NEWS has a policy of not releasing names of victims of sex assault. We reached out to the friend to hear the victim's side of the story.
