Police: Naugatuck man faces charges after attempting to entice a minor online


MERIDEN — A Naugatuck man charged with trying to solicit a minor online is scheduled to appear in court next month.

Gabriel Dossantos, 20, of 140 Irving St. was arrested Wednesday and charged with enticing a minor, risk of injury and criminal attempt of second-degree sexual assault.

Sgt. Darrin McKay, police spokesman, said Dossantos was soliciting what he believed was a minor girl, McKay said. Because of the sensitive nature of the investigations, McKay said the details of the case cannot be released. The computer crimes division worked on the case.

Dossantos was held on $100,000 bond and arraigned in Meriden Superior Court. He was released on a promise to appear and is due back in court on June 5.
