Abiye Adamu arrested as suspect in Denver sexual assault and kidnapping case.

A man has been arrested as a suspect in a Denver sex-assault case, and investigators are looking at similar incidents in which victims were forced or lured into a car.

Abiye Adamu, 31, was arrested on Tuesday and is being held for investigation of sexual assault and kidnapping connected to a Sunday  incident, Denver police said in a news release.

Police said Thursday that investigators are looking at other recent sex assaults — committed between Nov. 25 and Monday — in which Adamu “is believed to be involved.”

In those cases victims are lured or forced into a vehicle, described as a black 2016 Honda Civic, according to a news release. Those cases happened in the areas of:

  • 17th and Wynkoop streets;
  • East 16th Avenue and Logan Street;
  • 17th Street and Broadway;
  • East Colfax Avenue and Clarkson Street.

Forensic evidence links Adamu to the sex assault arrest, police said.

Anyone with information on the incidents is asked to call police at 720-913-2000.
