On April 9, Fountain Police Department was notified by the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) of a 15-year-old girl being sexually assaulted by 32-year-old Wayne Lambert.

On April 7, according to the affidavit, Lambert offered the 15-year-old shots and she became very intoxicated while watching a movie in his room.
