Connecticut police charge student in sex assault


BRIDGEPORT — A 19-year-old student has been charged with sexually assaulting another student at Harding High School in Bridgeport earlier in the school year. Authorities say both are mentally disabled.

Bridgeport police said Wednesday the older student has been charged with first-degree sexual assault, risk of injury and third-degree abuse. The arrest resulted from an investigation that began in August 2013 when police learned of a possible sexual assault in a school bathroom.

The Bridgeport Post reports that police say the alleged assault took place in front of other students and that one spectator recorded the incident on his camera phone and showed it around school.

Superior Court Judge Earl Richards ordered the 19-year-old held in lieu of bond and continued the case until July 8.
