On December 9, 2021, Aurora Police Officers investigated a concerning incident involving a sexual assault on a child in the 1300 block of N. Chester St.  It was alleged that a male suspect entered a residence, identified himself as an immigration official and proceeded to sexually assault a 7-year-old female victim.

Detectives from APD’s Crimes Against Children Unit responded to investigate the matter.  At approximately 9:00 A.M. on December 10th, 2021, Kenneth Dean Lee was arrested in connection with this incident for the charges of Sexual Assault on a Child and First Degree Burglary.  The case is currently in the hands of the Arapahoe County District Attorney’s office pending prosecution.  Our Victim Services Unit is working closely with the family to offer support and help them work through this difficult event.  

During the course of the investigation, it was learned that Lee has a disturbing criminal history with a pattern of similar allegations.  It is believed that Lee has specifically targeted immigrant and refugee families to perpetrate his alleged crimes.  The Aurora Police Department wants residents to know that anybody in the City of Aurora, regardless of their immigration status, should feel safe reporting crimes and reported allegations will be taken seriously.  If you wish to report a crime involving Lee please do so by calling the Aurora911 Center at 303.627-3100.
