Man Charged With Sex Assault at US Airport

Denver, Apr 20 (AP) A man suspected of raping a 22-year-old woman at Denver International Airport was charged with one count of sexual assault.

Noel Bertrand, 26, of Portland, Oregon was accused of assaulting the woman just after midnight April 12 on the floor of a concourse. Two airport employees on the tarmac saw the incident through a window and intervened, authorities said yesterday.

The woman's family members said they were shocked to hear that Bertrand was only charged with one count. Several messages seeking comment from family lawyer Patrick Ridley were not immediately returned.

The Associated Press does not use the names of people who report being sexually assaulted unless they agree to be identified. The AP also isn't identifying family members to protect the woman's identity.

Bertrand was being held on USD 50,000 bond and was due in court Thursday, when a public defender could be named to represent him.
