STAMFORD -

Police have charged a man from Stamford with sexual assault.

According to police, the arrest stemmed from a parents' report last year that their 13-year-old daughter was missing.

Police accuse Adelso Santiago-Gomez, 19, of taking the girl to New Jersey.

Santiago-Gomez was originally charged with risk of injury to a child, but the investigation revealed he had sex with the 13-year-old.

Since Santiago-Gomez is more than three years older, he is charged with sexual assault.
