DENVER (AP) - A Transportation Security Administration agent has been arrested at Denver International Airport on charges of sexual assault on a child.

The Denver Post reports 33-year-old Matthew Paul Barnett was arrested Friday on 12 felony counts.

No listed phone number could be found for Barnett. Online jail records didn’t indicate whether he has a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.

The TSA fired Barnett after his arrest.

Barnett faces counts of sexual assault on a child, sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust and sexual assault on a child as a pattern of abuse.

No further information was available on the incidents.
