COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. A retired Air Force chaplain was arrested Wednesday in a sexual assault case that detectives say involves at least four victims.
The suspect is 78-year-old David Grosse.
Police received a report of an alleged sexual assault on July 3 and opened their investigation at that time.
Investigators are concerned that there may be more victims, says Colorado Springs police spokeswoman Barbara Miller.
Grosse pastored churches in Connecticut, Kansas, California and Wyoming. Grosse currently lives in Colorado Springs but according to his online biography but he has worked in both Kansas City and Lenexa.
After he retired from the Air Force, Grosse was hired as a consultant in adult education for the Headquarters, Church of the Nazarene in Lenexa.
Church of the Nazarene General Secretary David Wilson tells FOX 4 he cant recall the last time Grosse worked for the Headquarters, but says at no time did Grosse have contact with children while working as a consultant.
Grosse also worked in Kansas City for the Nazarene Theological Seminary where he was the Director of Chaplaincy Education until 1999.
Grosse had assignments across the United States, from Connecticut to Alaska, but he eventually settled in Colorado Springs with his wife, according to a biography about him listed in a Church of the Nazarene student guide published in 2006. According to the biography, Grosse was ordained as a minister in the Church of the Nazarene in 1962. In 1964, he was commissioned an Air Force chaplain, and served in Japan and Korea along with his U.S. stations. In later years, he helped create and chair the Chaplain Advisory Council, on which he served from 1973 until 2000. He served as Alaska Air Command Chaplain at Elmendorf Air Force Base from 1991 until 1993, when he retired as a Colonel.
Exactly, I had to read it three times to see if I was missing something. Damned media.
