Steamboat man arrested on suspicion of sex assault

A 39-year-old Steamboat Springs man was arrested Thursday morning for allegedly sexually assaulting a 38-year-old Steamboat woman.

The victim met with Steamboat Springs police Officer Deborah Funston and told her that she met a man at Lupo's just after midnight Thursday, said Steamboat Springs Assistant Police Chief Art Fiebing. The two then went to a party at the man's condominium, where the alleged assault occurred, Fiebing said.

The victim reported the incident the following morning, and a warrant was issued for the man in the alleged attack. He was arrested about 9 a.m. Thursday.

"What it comes down to is she said no, and he did it anyway," Fiebing said.

Agents for 'The Bachelor' looking in Steamboat

Casting agents for the popular ABC show "The Bachelor" called Steamboat Springs this week looking for an eligible man. They are scouting in towns where there is a higher percentage of men than women.

They are looking for a man between the ages of 25 and 35, single with no children. The man should have an established career.

"We are looking for the quintessential eligible bachelor," said ABC casting director Amy Raymond. "We want a guy that you would love to marry. He should be charismatic and attractive."

The bachelors will be on television and numerous magazine covers, she said. "He needs to be the total package."

He needs to be, in short, someone who 25 women would fall in love with and America would want to watch.

If you know this person and would like to nominate him for the show or for an article about Steamboat bachelors in the Steamboat Pilot & Today, e-mail or e-mail

The deadline for nomination is the end of January.

An application is available at and should be submitted with a photo.
