Waterbury Man Arrested for Sexual Assault

NEW HAVEN, Con.. (WTNH)- A Waterbury man was arrested after police say he raped a woman he met on the dating app called “Tagged.”

Police say 26-year-old Timmy Turner Junior arranged to meet a 22-year-old Massachusetts woman at a multi-family home in New Haven. They say that’s when he put a gun to her head and raped her.

“With the prevalence of online dating and app dating this is unfortunately the type of crime we’re seeing more and more of,” said Officer David Hartman, New Haven Police. “This is something people need to be very aware of, and very careful of.”

Officer Hartman says if you want to meet face to face with someone you’ve met online, you should always do it in a public spot.
