DENVER (AP) - Denver police have arrested a Denver deputy sheriff over accusations of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.
Forty-eight-year-old Mark Davis was being held Monday in the Jefferson County jail. Police say the alleged assault happened while Davis was off-duty. Detectives say they are concerned there could be other children who are now adults who also were victimized. Authorities say Davis has lived in the Montbello neighborhood in northeast Denver for more than 20 years.
The sheriff's department has placed Davis on leave pending results of the investigation. He has an unlisted phone number. Online jail records didn't indicate whether he has a lawyer.
