New London, Conn. (WTNH) – Police have arrested a man they say sexually assaulted a minor.   Cops first became aware of the situation after a juvenile reported earlier this month, of being sexually assaulted by someone her family knows.

The victim says the attacks happened on several different occasions between October 2014 and January 2015. The victim had to undergo a specialized forensic interview detailing the assaults.   Once that was completed cops issued an arrest warrant for 26-year-old Frank Jimenez of New London.
