A Bridgeport man is in custody after sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl on Fairfield Avenue, according to police.
Harold Frazier, 33, was arrested after allegedly forcing the victim to have sex with him.
Police said the victim and a friend had stopped to talk to someone when Frazier pulled up in a red Dodge Charger and offered the victim a ride. The victim told police that she was reluctant but said her friend reassured her, so she accepted Frazier’s offer.
According to police, Frazier brought the victim back to a home near Harriet Street, took her inside and forced her to have sex with him.
Frazier confessed to the assault after his arrest, police said.
He was charged on Tuesday with second-degree sexual assault, risk of injury to a minor and reckless endangerment. Frazier is being held on a $75,000 bond.
