Former Cripple Creek sergeant accused of unlawful sexual contact on duty

Alexander Kenoyer was arrested in December, and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation said there might be additional victims.

CRIPPLE CREEK, Colo. — Investigators said on Friday they are looking for additional victims after a former Cripple Creek Police officer was arrested and accused of sexual assault while on duty.

Alexander Kenoyer, who was a sergeant and detective with the Cripple Creek Police Department, was arrested Dec. 19, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI). He's charged with:

  • Two counts of unlawful sexual contact by a police officer
  • One count of attempting to influence a public servant

The charges stem from an alleged inappropriate sexual relationship with a victim of a crime that Kenoyer investigated as a member of the department beginning in October 2021, CBI said.

Cripple Creek Police Chief Charles Bright requested assistance from CBI based on allegations made by a resident as part of an Internal Affairs investigation initiated by the department on Aug. 20.

Through their investigation, CBI agents discovered several explicit images and videos – possibly from the internet – of women who might have been photographed or filmed by Kenoyer without their consent. Some of them might have been aware they were filmed or photographed but were unaware that those images or videos were being shared online, the agency said.

Kenoyer was placed on administrative leave from the department Aug. 24 and resigned about two months later on Oct. 25.

CBI agents believe there may be additional victims. Anyone with information about this incident, or who may have had inappropriate contact with Kenoyer in his role as a member of law enforcement is asked to call 719-662-2662.
