Genetic testing tied an Air Force Academy cadet to a rape in Boulder where he was jailed Wednesday, Boulder police said Wednesday.
Cadet Jack D. Warmolts, a lacrosse player at the school, was accused of attacking a woman last April.
“The female victim was with a group of Air Force cadets, which included Warmolts, the evening of the alleged attack,” Boulder police said in a news release. “DNA evidence collected during the sexual-assault examination matched Warmolts.”
Warmolts was a standout high school lacrosse player in Ohio who gained entrance to the Academy through its Preparatory School, which allows those who don’t meet the Academy’s strict academic standards a year of tutoring before they become cadets.
“We are cooperating fully with the Boulder Police Department and allowing their judicial process to take its course,” the Academy said in a statement.
Warmolts was arrested Tuesday at the Academy and booked into the Boulder County jail.
