DENVER — A man arrested last month on suspicion of sexual assault might have committed similar crimes in several states over the past 10 years, the Denver Police Department (DPD) said Monday.

Demetrius Antonio Esquire Wooden, 34, of Minnesota, is suspected of sexual assaults last year in Denver and Commerce City. He was arrested March 31 in Grandview, Missouri, and extradited to Colorado.

As they investigated that incident, they determined it was related to a separate sex assault in Denver involving a different victim, CCPD said. That assault occurred in June 2021 in Denver's Gateway neighborhood.
