STAMFORD - Police say they have arrested a registered sex offender from Stamford that they had been searching for.

Officers say Scott Cogswell was arrested in Milford last week for violating his probation.

They say Cogswell had been on probation for sexually assaulting a 5-year-old girl and was wanted because he did not appear in court.

Police say Cogswell led officers on two chases last month and was traveling with a missing teenage girl.
