A 49-year-old Meriden man has been charged with sexual assaulting two teenage girls from Naugatuck.
The Naugatuck Police Department arrested James Fiske, of 104 Bunker Ave., for inappropriately fondling two girls, ages 15 and 17, who were described in a police report as being “acquaintances” of Fiske’s.
The investigation began on May 11 when the state Department of Children and Families initiated a complaint, according to a police report. Police said the incidents occurred in Naugatuck.
After a lengthy investigation, Naugatuck police executed an arrest warrant at Fiske’s home Monday evening.
He was charged with second-degree sexual assault: intercourse with someone unable to consent, a felony, and risk of injury to a child, in connection with the case involving the 15-year-old. And he was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault, a misdemeanor, in connection with case involving the 17-year-old.
He was held on separate $150,000 and $100,000 bonds and was to be arraigned at Waterbury Superior Court on Tuesday (today).
Naugatuck Police said they do not believe Fisk has any prior convictions. The state Judicial Branch’s website also does not show any convictions on his record.
Naugatuck Police spokesman Lt. Robert Harrison said this case remains an active investigation.
