David Calderon, 38, is accused of forcefully taking the 16-year-old girl in front of Hays supermarket Tuesday night. Police say Calderon sexually assaulted the teen while she was being held against her will. The teen was able to escape the home Thursday morning and call police.
An affidavit was released Friday and reveals new details in the case.
According to the affidavit, the teen told police that Calderon pulled up alongside her as she waited in the supermarket's parking lot and asked if she needed a ride. He then asked for a lighter when she said "no" he grabbed her and put her in his car.
The teen said while in his car he held her with his right arm while he drove with his left arm. She said he asked her if she was a cop. She said "No." He replied "good." She said Calderon then told her that he had a gun and that if she ran he would "hunt [her] down," the affidavit read.
The girl told police that during her time at Calderon's home he had touched her in a sexual way. At one point, she said Calderon pulled out a hand gun and told her "don't every try and run away."
The affidavit says Calderon took the teen along with him on what she believes were drug deals. When the two were in Fort Collins on one of the alleged drug deals, the teen told police Calderon told her to "lose the attitude" or he would give her a black eye. She said Calderon then hit her with his palm on the left side of her face.
In the same affidavit, Calderon denies taking the teen by force. He said the girl asked him for a ride and she went inside the car willingly. He told police they drove around at which point she said her mother was not home and they went back to his place.
Calderon told police that the gun she claims was real was in fact a pellet gun. He denies hitting the girl and told police the teen accidently hit her face on the car door while the two were at a car wash in Milliken. He said there was no sexual contact between the two. He said the only contact he made was a hug.
"I know what [the alleged victim] feels, and I know what I feel.I'vebeen on unemployment. I was supposed to get a job Monday, get back to work," Calderon said in a rambling speech to the judge.
During Calderon's court appearance Friday, his sister told 9NEWS that she believes the teen is lying.
"For this little girl to come in out of nowhere and do all this to hurt us in this way, when she has previous runaways, I don't get it," Calderon's sister said.
District Court Judge Thomas Quammen advised Calderon of his rights and set his bond at $200,000.
