In late October 2019, a sexual assault was reported to the Colorado Springs Police Department involving students enrolled at The Classical Academy (TCA). The initial investigation revealed during the 2015-2016 school year, a student at TCA may have sexually assaulted another student while on school property.
Throughout their investigative efforts over the next month, detectives were able to identify additional victims and gather sufficient evidence leading to the suspect’s arrest. On November 19th, 2019, 22-year-old Jason Emanuelson was arrested for two counts of sexual assault related to this investigation and booked into the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center. Emanuelson was a senior at TCA during the 2015-2016 school year.
Because additional victims of Emanuelson were identified through their investigation, detectives believe there could be more; and are actively looking to identify possible victims. If you have information directly related to this investigation, or have been the victim of sexual violence in the past, the Colorado Springs Police Department encourages you to contact the Department’s non-emergency dispatch at 444-7000.
We are unable to release the mugshot of Emanuelson at this time to ensure the integrity of potential future identifications.
