Summit County Sheriff’s Office

Rude awakening

A woman is facing charges after she walked in on her former boyfriend in bed with another woman and allegedly dragged the woman out of bed by her hair and assaulted her.

According to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, the alleged victim and witnesses accused the woman of repeatedly hitting the victim, giving her a bloody nose during the incident April 15.

The alleged victim said she woke up that morning as she was being pulled out of bed by the scalp. She told authorities the woman then hit her repeatedly and tore out chunks of her hair, the report states.

The man involved reluctantly stated he’d been in bed with the alleged victim when his ex-girlfriend came into the room, saw them and became violent, according to the report. He told authorities he’d dated the woman for roughly a year and they’d lived together. He said they had broken up two months before and he assumed she had come to the residence to pick up some of her belongings that were still at the house, according to the report.

A roommate who was in the house at the time gave a similar account of the morning’s events, saying he’d walked in to find the former girlfriend hitting his roommate’s guest after the sound of yelling had woken him up.

The woman refused to make a statement about the incident, according to the report. She was cited for third-degree assault and served with a restraining order.

No passing

A man was arrested for theft and criminal trespassing April 18 after he was reportedly caught using his roommate’s pass at a local ski area.

A pass scanner stopped the man after noticing that he did not resemble the photograph on the pass, according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

The man gave him the correct name, but could not confirm the pass-holder’s birthday or address, the report states.

When contacted by authorities the man allegedly admitted to borrowing his roommate’s pass, knowing he was not allowed to do so.

He reportedly had an arrest warrant out for another driving-related charge in Arvada.

He was arrested and booked on charges of theft under $500, third-degree criminal trespass and fugitive of justice, according to the report.

Breckenridge Police Department

Graffiti sightings continue

Vandalism of two more buildings were reported in Breckenridge April 2.

A graffiti drawing of what appeared to be a dark storm cloud with a pink lighting bolt was discovered on the rear of a condominium building in town, according to a Breckenridge police report.

The estimated cost of clean up was $500.

There have been several taggings reported over the last few months around Breckenridge, according to reports from the police department.

Another one was reported at Breckenridge Elementary School the same day, although the two did not match, according to reports.

The graffiti at the elementary school was expected to cost approximately $2,000 to remove, the report stated.
