BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport police say they arrested a 19-year-old baby sitter this week for sexually assaulting a young boy over a period of five years.

Police say they arrested Jonathan Gonzalez, 19, yesterday after the boy told his mother about the alleged sexual assaults. They say the boy is now 10 years old.

The boy claims Gonzalez would get into the shower with him and told him not to tell anyone about what he was doing, according to authorities.

They say Gonzales denied sexually assaulting the boy. He's being held on $100,000 bond and is expected to be in court next month.
