Milford man accused of attempting to lure young girl into his car

MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A Milford man is facing charges after police say he tried to get a young girl to get into his car on Meadowside Road Sunday afternoon.

Just after 1:00 p.m., Milford police responded to the area of Meadowside Road near Demaio Drive. Officers received a complaint that 68-year-old Thomas Stanton had approached a young girl on her bicycle and asked her to get into his car.

The girl fled the scene on her bike, and went to a friend’s house nearby to call 9-1-1. After a short investigation, Milford officers determined that Stanton was the man that approached the young girl. After taking him into custody, the victim positively identified Stanton.

Stanton is charged with risk of injury to a minor and breach of peace. His bond was set at $5,000, and he is due in Milford Superior Court on January 26th.
