Sexual Assault Arrest

Share this page:

In July 2020, the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) initiated a criminal investigation into a reported sexual assault. Shortly after in August 2020, the CSPD initiated another criminal investigation into a separate report of sexual assault. During the investigations, it was discovered that both of these incidents involved the same suspect.

As a result of the dedicated work by detectives, the suspect was positively identified. In May 2021, the CSPD arrested the suspect, 29-year-old Kevin Lemuel, for one count of kidnapping and two counts of sexual assault. In both cases, Mr. Lemuel met his victims at local bars in Colorado Springs.

As part of the work being done by CSPD Special Victims detectives, they are continuing to seek any additional information, to include potential unreported incidences involving the suspect. If anyone has any information or was a victim of Mr. Lemuel, please call the Colorado Springs Police Department using the department’s main number, 719-444-7000 and reference the call screen number listed above. All information will be forwarded to Special Victims Section Detectives.

This is still an active investigation. At this time, we are only releasing limited information in order to ensure the integrity of the investigation and protect the victims.
