    Guilford police are warning residents about a recent string of daytime burglaries all across town.

    A Guilford man is accused of sexually assaulting a boy in Rhode Island and Guilford police said they assisted authorities there with arresting a suspect.

    Guilford police said they assisted police in Burrillville, Rhode Island Wednesday in arresting 35-year-old Christopher Michaelson, of Guilford.

    They said Burrillville detectives asked for their assistance in October while investigating an allegation of a sexual assault of a boy. They said it stemmed from Internet contact then personal contact in Burrillville and Michaelson was identified as a suspect.

    Burrillville detectives secured a warrant for Michaelson’s arrest in Rhode Island on charges of first-degree child molestation, second-degree child molestation, enticement of a minor in the first degree and indecent solicitation of a child.

    He is being held on a $250,000 bond and will be arraigned in New Haven on Jan. 10 if he does not make bond, according to Guilford police.
