Former Air Force Chaplain Accused Of Sex Assault In Court

A retired Air Force chaplain arrested on allegations of sex assault on a child will be in court Monday.

Detectives with the Colorado Springs Police Department first received word about a possible sexual assault case centering around retired chaplain David Grosse, 78, on July 3. As they delved into the investigation, at least four victims were discovered.

According to court papers obtained by 11 News, one of the alleged victims told police Grosse started sexually abusing her when she was just 4 years old. That victim went on to tell authorities that the abuse took place almost every time she visited Grosse at his house in Monument, and other homes in Colorado Springs, Monument and Nathrop.

The court papers outline similar encounters with other young girls.
Police arrested Grosse after these girls came forward to authorities.

Records indicate this is the first time Grosse has ever been arrested.

Investigators believe there may be more victims, and asks that anyone ever victimized by Grosse to step forward so that police can help.

Anyone with any information that could help investigators with this case is asked to call police at 444-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
