On November 29th, 2016 Steamboat Springs Police arrested 60- year-old Miguel Angel Diaz-Martinez (DOB: 05/18/56) of Steamboat Springs on charges of Aggravated Sexual Assault, Sexual Assault on a Child, Patronizing a Prostituted Child, Inducement of Child Prostitution, and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor. Diaz-Martinez is currently in custody at the Routt County Detention Center; he has a one million dollar bond.

In July 2016, the Steamboat Springs Police Department received information through the Crime Stoppers hotline providing details of illegal drug activity at a residence in the City of Steamboat Springs. Investigators collaborated with the All Crimes Enforcement Team to investigate the tip. As details emerged, Steamboat Springs detectives discovered multiple juvenile victims of sexual assault. At least four victims have been identified, but detectives believe there are more.

“I am so proud of the victims who have come forward, “ said Commander Annette Dopplick. She explained the reluctance of some victims to come forward can be complicated. This is especially true for young victims who may feel shame because the abuse has repeatedly violated their body space and acted against their will through coercion and manipulation.

Anybody with any information regarding DIAZ-MARTINEZ is encouraged to contact the Steamboat Springs Department at (970)879-1144.
