A registered sex offender has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexually assaulting a teenage girl as she was walking to her bus stop in Meriden in December 2011.

The then-16-year-old girl told police a stranger confronted her around 7 a.m. a few days before Christmas in 2011 and tried to restrain her.

She fought back, but he forced her into a vacant house on Springdale Avenue, assaulted her and threatened to kill her if she cried for help, police said.

Police said forensic science helped to identify Luis Concepcion, 42, as a suspect.

Concepcion was arrested on May 2 and charged with first-degree sexual assault and second-degree kidnapping.

He was sentenced on Tuesday.

According to the Connecticut sex offender registry, he was convicted on a first-degree sexual assault on Jan. 29, 1991. He was released from prison on Oct. 13, 2000 in that case.

Court records also state he was charged with third-degree sex assault in August 2012 for an incident in Meriden on May 14, 2012.  He was convicted on Jan. 28, 2013 and sentenced to 18 months in jail.
