Former Hygiene Fire captain accused of sexual assault

A former Hygiene Fire captain is accused of sexually assaulting multiple women, including two subordinates.

Kamron Barnaby, 30, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of five counts of sexual assault, four counts of unlawful sexual contact and one count of first-degree official misconduct.

According to a release, four women came forward and accused Barnaby of sexual assault. Two of the women were subordinates under Barnaby, who was a Hygiene Fire captain at the time.

The allegations include incidents that occurred while Barnaby was on duty.

Barnaby is currently employed by the Mountain View Fire Protection District, but has been placed on unpaid leave.

“We are deeply concerned about the allegations regarding one of our firefighters,” Mountain View Fire wrote in a statement. “Mountain View Fire Rescue is committed to being a safe and inclusive workplace for everyone. We’re assessing these accusations and currently discussing the situation with our legal counsel.”

Investigators believe there are additional victims and witnesses, and those with information are asked to contact Detective Mike McKinley with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office at 303-441-4692 or via email at [email protected].

Barnaby is being held at the Boulder County Jail pending a bond hearing.
