"She fought him off for 20 minutes to prevent a sexual assault, aided by her dog who bit the male in the face," the post says.

Police then took the suspect, Seth Estabrooks, 39, into custody. Police said he is a "transient" man from Boulder, who had no prior relationship to the woman.

The suspect was processed and treated for the dog bites at UCHealth Poudre Valley Hospital.

  • 2nd Degree Assault Strangulation - Class 4 Felony
  • Unlawful Sexual Contact with Force or Threat - Class 4 Felony
  • False imprisonment by Force - Class 5 Felony

"All charges are merely an accusation by law enforcement," the Facebook post states. "The suspect must be presumed innocent until proven guilty in court."
