This is the result of an ongoing investigation with the Hartford Police Department and the New Britain Police Department related to several sexual assaults. This warrant is for an alleged sexual assault which occurred in March of 2012. The circumstances of this investigation are consistent with a serial pattern evident in Hartford and New Britain.
