COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — An Army officer facing child sexual assault charges in Colorado and Alabama is also a suspect in Texas.

Sgt. Steve Shelley of the Texarkana, Texas, police said Wednesday that DNA from 1st Lt. Aaron Gregory Lucas matched DNA in a 2009 kidnapping and indecency case there.

Shelley says his department will seek an arrest warrant for Lucas.

The 31-year-old Lucas is an artillery officer assigned to Fort Carson, just outside Colorado Springs. He is being held without bail on suspicion of sexual assault, kidnapping, enticement and indecent exposure in communities surrounding Fort Carson.

He also faces charges of child enticement and sexual abuse of a child younger than 12 in Madison, Ala.

In the Texas case, a 7-year-old girl was abducted from a playground and returned about 30 minutes later.
