FAIRFIELD - Fairfield police say a Bronx man is facing sexual assault charges after he allegedly kissed and groped someone at a Halloween party at Sacred Heart University.

Police say 19-year-old Frank Anthony Sapienza touched the female victim during a party on campus despite being told to stop several times.

"Luckily, he did it in front of witnesses who were actually able to pull him off, but there's no excuse for his behavior. So this individual who is not a student at Sacred Heart University was arrested," says Lt. James Perez, of the Fairfield Police Department.

Police say Sapienza was wearing a police officer costume at the time. They say he admitted that he did not immediately stop touching the victim.
