STAMFORD - A security guard at Stamford High School faces sex assault charges after police say he admitted buying underwear from a 15-year-old student.

Police say the girl admitted it after she was questioned by her guardian about the unusually large amount of spending money she had.

Police say Pasquale Mecca, 52, confessed to buying the underwear several times both on and off school grounds. School officials say Mecca has been suspended from his job.

Mecca also admitted to having inappropriate contact with the girl on a least one occasion, police say. Mecca posted $25,000 bail.
