75-year-old woman attacked at Boulder park

Police said a man walked up to the woman, grabbed her by her hair and threw her to the ground.

BOULDER, Colo. — The Boulder Police Department (BPD) is looking for witnesses to an attack on a 75-year-old woman at a park Thursday. 

BPD said it happened around 12:45 p.m. Thursday, when a couple visiting from out of state were walking on the bike path near the 1700 block of 13th Street at Central Park. 

Police said a man walked up and grabbed the woman's hair and threw her to the ground. Passersby pulled the man off the woman and detained him until officers arrived. 

The suspect has been identified as 24-year-old James Moore. Police said he has no local address and no known ties to Boulder. He was taken to the hospital for a medical hold and was issued a felony summons for assault on an at-risk adult due to her age. 

Anyone who witnessed the attack or has information related to the investigation is asked to call Detective S. Ramos at 303-441-3323, reference case 22-06932.

Those who want to remain anonymous can contact Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at info@nococrimestoppers.com or 1-800-222-8477.  

Calls to Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers are not recorded and the phone does not have caller ID, according to the NoCoCrimestoppers website. A coordinator completes a tips information form, makes initial inquiries and passes the information along to investigators. 

A two-way dialogue system online also allows tipsters to come back and provide additional information and ask questions.  

A community board of directors meets regularly to evaluate arrests and determine reward amounts.
