BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport police say a man faces charges for sexually assaulting a Sacred Heart University student.
They say Alfonso Reid, 39, assaulted the 19-year-old woman at his home on Scoffield Avenue last week. Police say Reid met the teen at a popular Bridgeport bar. They say the girl was with her friends when they accepted a ride from Reid back to the dorms.
Police say they're investigating how the victim ended up at Reid's home, but add that it was against her will.
Police say they arrested Reid Tuesday and charged him with first-degree sex assault.
