- Affidavit: 2 others accuse Miller of sex assault
- Jul 14, 2014
JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. – A man who is suspected of sexually assaulting women he met on Internet dating sites and other websites was advised of a felony charge against him in Jefferson County court on Monday.
Michael David Miller, 28, of Aurora, faces one count of sexual assault in connection with an alleged attack on a Golden woman in May.
However, Jefferson County sheriff’s officials say Miller has made admissions indicating that other victims may exist who have not yet come forward. Officials are asking women who believe they have been victimized by Miller to call sheriff’s Investigator Michalene Parreco at 303-271-5623.
According to an arrest affidavit, sheriff’s investigators have identified two other women who previously accused Miller of sexually assaulting them after they met him online.

Orlando police are searching for the man they say is wanted after stabbing a woman he met on an online dating site and forcing her to commit sexual acts.
Police said the 19-year-old victim met the man on Datehook-up.com and agreed to meet in person after talking for two hours. An hour and half, later the man picked the victim up from her residence, stopped at the Mobil gas station on Hiawassee and Old Winter Garden Road, parked in a bank parking lot, according to police.
The man then showed a knife and forced the victim to perform sex acts on him, to which she complied, police said.
According to police, the man then tried to force the victim out of the car, but she refused to leave without her purse.
Police said he then drove away with the victim inside, who began screaming she was raped at passing vehicles. The victim got out of the car with her purse and was stabbed in the thigh by the man.
Police released surveillance video of the man and described his vehicle as a newer model, white Toyota Camry.
The woman was taken to an area hospital, treated and released.
