    Shelton police have arrested a 28-year-old Stratford man who is accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl.

    Police said the 15-year-old girl filed a complaint in 2008 and told police that she met Michael Capogrosso one night in Shelton, he brought her to his apartment and forced her to have intercourse with him.

    Police were unable to find Capogrosso, who was suspected of leaving the state.

    U.S. Marshals assisted in arresting him on a warrant on Thursday.

    He was charged with second-degree sexual assault in the second degree. Capogrosso held on a $25,000 bond and appeared at Derby Court on Thursday.

    It is not clear if he has an attorney.
