A 15 year-old Stamford resident was arrested Thursday night for the alleged sexual assault of his 11 year-old relative that resulted in her becoming pregnant, according to Sergeant Joseph Kennedy.
The victim, Sgt. Kennedy said, was brought to Stamford Hospital in early June to be treated for an unrelated illness when her doctors discovered the pregnancy and contacted the department. The victim, who is also a Stamford resident and lives with the suspect, was later transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital for further treatment of the unrelated illness, Kennedy said.
Following an investigation, the suspect, whose name has not been released because he is minor, was charged with first-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor. He is currently being held at a Bridgeport detention center.
The exact length and extent of the alleged abuse has not yet been determined, Sgt. Kennedy said.
