Brandon Heginger allegedly fits bathroom peeping into busy night of burglary, sex assault
Last month, when we first wrote about Brandon Heginger, we didn't name him Schmuck of the Week even though his alleged acts, including burglary and sex assault, made him richly qualified for this honor.

Fortunately, though, we've gotten a second chance. After being busted for the initial offenses, Heginger has now been accused of peeping at a woman in a CU-Boulder bathroom that he was caught on camera leaving the very same night.
As we reported last month, Heginger's Facebook page identifies the 22-year-old as a longtime resident of Iowa who attended Iowa State University and Ellsworth Community College. Last August, he posted the following message: "Moving to Colorado this Tuesday. Last party night in Ames!! Hit me up!!!"

Heginger is said to be a resident of Lakewood, not Boulder. But investigators believe he was in the latter community on April 13, partying with friends into the wee hours.
Meanwhile, a young woman was sleeping in her home on the 100 block of Grandview Avenue on University Hill when she was awakened in the rudest way imaginable.
In an interview with 9News in which her identity was concealed, she revealed that she woke up to feel a stranger's hands running up and down her body. That she was unconscious when this abuse started only makes what happened that much more disturbing, she conceded.
The estimated time of the attack: between 2:30 a.m. and 4:30 a.m.

When the woman confronted him, the man left -- but he took a laptop computer with him. And that proved to be his downfall.
Officers were able to trace the computer to Heginger's place, on the 12100 block of West Nevada Drive in Lakewood.
Afterward, the BPD says Heginger admitted that he'd broken into the woman's home -- a residence he'd chosen at random -- and sexually assaulted her. However, he didn't mention any of his other activities that evening, including allegedly criminal ones. And it took the authorities a while to connect him to another creepy incident.
