On August 15, 2017, Fort Collins Police arrested Stefan Alexander Moon (DOB 02/11/81) for a 2013 cold case. Moon’s charges include:

  • Attempted 1st Degree Murder (class 2 felony)

  • Two counts of Sexual Assault (class 2 felony)

On August 31, 2013, Dispatch received multiple reports of a young woman screaming near Cottonwood Glen Park. When officers arrived, they located a nude female victim who had been immobilized with duct tape. The victim was transported to Medical Center of the Rockies with serious bodily injuries. Through the course of the investigation, detectives determined that the victim had been socializing in Rossborough Park the previous night. The victim had been transported at some point to an unknown residence where she was severely assaulted and lost consciousness.

Police conducted a thorough investigation but were unable to identify a suspect at that time. On August 11, 2017, detectives were notified that forensic evidence had connected Moon with the 2013 crime. A warrant was issued for his arrest, and he was taken into custody on August 15, 2017.
