SECURITY GUARD CHARGED IN ALLEGED ASSAULT
Denver District Attorney Beth McCann has formally charged an RTD-contracted security guard in connection with the assault of another man in a restroom at Union Station.
James Hunter (dob: 01-17-1984) is charged with one count of assault in the first degree (F3) and one count of intimidating a witness or victim (F4). Charges were filed Friday.
The charges allege that on April 20, 2018, following a verbal confrontation Hunter assaulted an adult male victim in a restroom at Union Station. At the time of the incident, Hunter was employed as a security guard by Allied Universal under contract to RTD. The alleged assault was reported by the victim to Denver Police on May 17, who then initiated an investigation.
The defendant is scheduled to appear on June 13 at 8:00 a.m. in courtroom 2300 for 2nd advisement.
