Ice cream shop co-owner arrested in sex case
B boulder» The Daily Camera reported that police are asking for the public’s help in locating other potential victims of a man they accuse of committing sexual assaults in Boulder over the past 15 years.
Scott Roy, 54, identified by police as the co-owner of Boulder Ice Cream, was arrested Thursday evening for investigation of unlawful sexual contact and harassment.
A department news release stated that the investigation into Roy began in late 2015, when two of his alleged victims contacted them to report being sexually assaulted by their former boss.
Both women had been hired to work on the production line at Boulder Ice Cream and at the Boulder Farmer’s Markets. They were Spanish speaking and had a compromised work status, police said.
Upon being hired, the women used their real names but fake Social Security numbers, police said. They were not required to fill out any government forms.
Late in 2015, the company became aware of the ongoing abuse allegations and contacted one of the victims. A short time later, two of the victims were told they needed to address their work eligibility and submit a completed I-9 form with supporting documentation within three days. Both were unable to do so, and turned in resignation letters.
Boulder Ice Cream has operated at several locations throughout Boulder over the past 15 years.
