Jean Leconte, of Bridgeport, accused of sexual assault in Fairfield

FAIRFIELD - A Bridgeport man is facing sex assault charges after police say he was caught masturbating in a Fairfield department store.

Officers arrested Jean Leconte at the T.J. Maxx in Fairfield on Friday.

A female shopper told police she felt someone brush up against her, then turned around and saw Leconte masturbating.

They say Leconte had been arrested in 2010 on similar charges in two incidents.

In those cases, he was sentenced to probation and ordered to get mental health treatment.
