KEENESBURG -- Weld County sheriff's deputies arrested a Keenesburg man April 24 after he allegedly pulled a woman into an alley.



The incident happened in the 100 block of Stewart Street in Keenesburg shortly after 9 p.m. Deputies said the suspect, Jameq Hill, approached the woman as she was out walking. Chief Steve Reams said the suspect tried to cover the woman's mouth and pull her into an alley. She fought back and was able to run to a neighbor's home for help.


A little bit later, Reams said Hill asked a resident in Keenesburg if he could stay the night because the police were after him. The homeowner closed the door and called 911.


Deputies continued the investigation. Anyone with information should call 970-356-4015 ext. 2825.
