DENVER (AP) — More than two people have come forward with allegations that security agents at Denver International Airport groped them.

Denver district attorney spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough said Wednesday that several people called prosecutors after Denver television station KCNC ( http://cbsloc.al/1PHAg5f ) reported the firings of two security agents. A female agent and a male agent were accused of working together to allow one of them to grope a male traveler he thought was attractive.

Police reports say a Transportation Security Administration supervisor saw the two coordinating in February. The female agent is accused of setting a computer to indicate a woman was being screened so the machine would find an anomaly in the genital area, requiring a pat-down.

Prosecutors did not charge the screeners, but Kimbrough says the investigation continues as new victims come forward.
