BRIDGEPORT - Police say they are investigating claims of more potential victims of a sexual assault suspect in Bridgeport.

Police have arrested 51-year-old Confessor Soto, who is accused of sexually assaulting a girl on her 13th birthday. Investigators say they believe he raped the girl at least 80 times over the course of a year.

Investigators say they are looking into claims that Soto also sexually assaulted the girl's two sisters. The girl's 31-year-old mother is also facing charges because police allege she was complicit in her daughter's sexual assault.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to call Bridgeport police at 203-581-5201.
