New Canaan man faces judge on attempted kidnapping, sex assault charges
The former head of the New Canaan Red Cross had no comment as he was led into court Monday to face a judge. Albert Hsu, 43, is charged with attempted sexual assault, attempted kidnapping and using a false identity. Prosecutors say Hsu posed as his former mistress on the Internet in an effort to have someone kidnap and rape her. Hsu, also a former Cub Scout leader, was taken into custody at his home in New Canaan Friday following a lengthy investigation.
Police say all records on the case have been sealed to protect the victim. The American Red Cross won't comment on the case because it is a criminal investigation. Hsu is being held on $1 million bond.
