By For News Release, please contact our PIO

On November 14th at approximately 6:30 a.m. a 14 year old female was standing at a City bus stop at 2700 E. Fountain Blvd. when a Hispanic male driving a white 4 door vehicle asked if she wanted a ride. She stated she did not and he got out of the vehicle and forced her into the car.

He then drove to the area of 2100 E. Fountain Blvd. and began to sexually assault the victim. At one point, she told him she was having trouble breathing and he released his hold on her. She exited the vehicle and began to run. He chased after her and knocked her to the ground and again sexually assaulted her. When he was finished, he told her not to look at the car or he would stab her. He then left the area.

The victim described the suspect as a Hispanic or Panamanian male, 25-30 years old wearing military style clothing (BDU’s).

On December 9th, the Colorado Springs Police Department was contacted by the West Jordan, Utah Police Department who advised that they had a man in custody who was a soldier that was AWOL from Ft. Carson. He told them he went AWOL because he had raped a 14 year old girl in Colorado Springs.

The Army transported the soldier back to Colorado and today he was brought to the Police Operations Center where he was arrested for 1st Degree Kidnapping and Sexual Assault On A Child. He is identified as Miguel Alonso Contreras-Perez, a 23 year old Hispanic male. He will be transported to the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center and his bond is set at $20,000.
