STONINGTON — An 18-year-old man was arrested Wednesday after the police said an investigation found that he had inappropriately touched another passenger's genitals while they were riding in a van earlier this year. The man, Austin Thomas Serio, of 101 Brookside Lane, Stonington, was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and second-degree breach of peace.
He was scheduled for arraignment Thursday in New London Superior Court. Police said the alleged victim, who knew Serio, had made a complaint immediately after the incident. Further details were not released.
