A Penrose man was arrested Wednesday after an alleged Sex Assault and Standoff.

Casey Michael Myers, 33, was taken into custody after sheriff deputies were called to the 700 block of K Street in Penrose for a man the was reportedly suicidal. At the same time a woman came into the Fremont County Sheriff's Office in Canon City saying that she had been sexually assaulted by Myers.

When deputies arrived they say they found Myers in a shed on the property, armed with a handgun, holding off the deputies for an hour before surrendering.

The situation started after Myers allegedly called the victim and asked her to stop by the residence.    During the assault on the victim, Myers reportedly threatened the victim with a handgun and fired one shot into a garage wall.

The sheriff's office said the victim is not related to Myers but an acquaintance of the family.

Myers is being held in the Fremont County Detention Center for Kidnapping, Sexual Assault and Menacing on a $100,000 cash only bond.
