Basalt teen arrested on prices of felony intercourse assault

A 16-year-old basalt boy was arrested Wednesday and charged with two sexual assaults, according to sources.

An arrest report from the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office reveals the teen was arrested by the agency’s youth crimes investigator in the Pitkin County Courthouse.

However, the case has its origins in the Basalt Police, said Basalt Police President Greg Knott.

One of the two cases is that the victim was “physically helpless” and did not give consent under Colorado law.

No further information about the arrest was available as most of the information related to juvenile offenses is not public information.
