The Denver Police Department also announced a press conference will happen later tonight. PHT will provide more details as they become available.

Update: the Avalanche released a statement regarding the matter (via the Denver Post):

“The Colorado Avalanche organization is aware of the allegations concerning Semyon Varlamov. At this time, and until the conclusion of this investigation, the Avalanche organization will have no further comment on this situation.”

Colorado’s next game is on Friday in Dallas against the Stars.

Update 9:36 p.m. ET

According to the Post, Varlamov allegedly committed these crimes on Tuesday, Oct. 29.

Update 10:04 p.m. ET

Courtesy Mile High Sports, here’s some information from Denver Police Department spokesperson Steve Warneke:

“This evening, about 6 p.m., Semyon Varlamov, 4-27-of-88, turned himself in to the Denver Police Department in response to an arrest warrant that was issued for his arrest concerning a domestic violence incident which occurred on the 29th of October.

“The arrest warrant was issued for second degree kidnapping, which is a class four felony, and third degree assault, which is a class one misdemeanor.”

According to the Warneke, the incident occurred in the 1700 block of Bassett St. There are no details regarding the condition of the victim nor the victim’s relationship with Varlamov.

Update: 10:18 p.m. ET

One bit of information is that Varlamov is unable to bail out because he must see a judge before leaving, Parker reports. He refused an interview with the Denver Post reporter and is alone in a cell because of his fame.

Update: 11 p.m. ET

Parker notes that a class 4 felony charge (related to kidnapping) can carry a sentence of two-to-six years.
