Police apprehended former cable installer Jeff Albert Griego Wednesday, four
days after he allegedly sexually assaulted a Denver woman after claiming that he
was at her home to install cable.

Griego had previously worked for AT&T Broadband contractors CND and
Viasource Communications.

"Obviously, we are glad the authorities have found him, and we'll continue to
cooperate with them on the investigation," AT&T Broadband spokeswoman
Jeanine Hansen said.

According to Denver police reports, a 64-year-old woman said a man posing as
a cable installer forced his way into a home Jan. 18 and sexually assaulted
her.

The woman told police she recognized the man standing on her doorstep from
several months ago, when she had inquired about cable service.

But she was suspicious, and when she refused to let him into the house, he
forced his way in, according to reports. Claiming that he had a gun, he took
money and jewelry from the woman, then sexually assaulted her.

The man fled in the victim's car. Two days later, police located the car with
four men inside, but none was considered a suspect in the assault, according to
police.

AT&T Broadband does require background checks for its employees and
requires subcontractors to do the same.

But Hansen declined to comment when asked whether such a check had been
performed on Griego, who, according to reports, has a long arrest record
including burglary and drug charges in Denver and New Mexico.
