Spector is also suspected of fondling a child on Sept. 6 at Lava Island, 452 Sable Blvd., police said. He is under investigation for sexual assault on a child (pattern) in Arapahoe County in connection to the Aurora investigation. Lava Island is a family recreation center with play areas for children.
The alleged incident at the airport happened on July 29 and investigators on that day talked with the child’s mother and reviewed surveillance video, Denver police said. Investigators identified Spector as a suspect and on Sept. 6 obtained a search warrant for his arrest.
Investigators believe there may be additional victims in the area. Anyone with information on either case, or on unreported incidents, is asked to call Denver police at 720-913-6040; or Aurora police at 303-627-3100.
The investigations are ongoing.
