A Fort Carson soldier accused of sex assault on a child will be in court Monday.

Springs police say 19-year-old Pvt. Mark Petrosky had sex with a 14-year-old girl in a parking lot at Quail Lake late last month. A Fountain police sergeant found the pair in a vehicle together.

Court papers say Petrosky told police he thought the girl was 17-years-old. According to police, the victim told officers the sexual encounter was consensual.

Petrosky is assigned to the 3rd Brigade Armored Combat Team at Fort Carson.
