Hours after KRDO reported shocking details in arresting documents on a Fort Carson soldier accused of soliciting minors for prostitution, two women came forward with similar stories.
Private David Guerra was arrested this week and is facing several felony counts. The affidavit obtained by KRDO says he asked a 17-year-old girl to be his “sugar baby.” In exchange for sexual favors, he offered to pay her $9,000 every week.
Colorado Springs Police Sergeant Brian Frahm, the current acting Public Information Officer, said Guerra is not currently in the El Paso County jail, but their investigation continues.
Detectives are “getting a lot of information and working on several different leads,” he says.
19-year-old Amber Swain contacted the station on Facebook, claiming she and Guerra spoke on the dating app, Tinder.
She says the conversation started out normal. But when she denied his request to meet in person, he offered her money.
Swain says when she continued to deny Guerra he offered her more money.
“He’s like well, how about I offer you $15,000 to have sex with me right now? And, I was like no!” she says.
After posting on her own Facebook page the discovery she made, 20-year-old Cheyenne Connor sent Swain a message saying she had a similar story.
Connor said she met Guerra in-person with a friend of hers.
“We went back to their barracks and just hung out in one of the rooms,” said Connor. She described the interaction as ‘just a normal hangout’. “When I first met him it was all just a chill, we all talked, we were all driving around.”
But a week later, Connor says Guerra started asking her for more than just a date.
“He slowly started asking for the money, to send me money to hang out and intercourse… anything,” she says.
Neither woman had sex with Guerra, and they hope their stories serve as a warning for others.
“Watch out because you never know what you’re going to run into,” said Connor.
Colorado Springs police are still asking for more potential victims to come forward if they’ve had contact with Guerra.
