DirecTV Sub-Contractor Sexually Assaulted Customer: Police

West Hartford police have arrested a sub-contractor for DirecTV, who’s accused of sexually assaulting a customer during an appointment to install equipment.

Police responded to a home on Hillcrest Avenue around 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday to investigate the report of a sexual assault that had just happened and met with the victim.

She said Rashford Gordon, 38, of Bloomfield, made advances, then sexually assaulted her, police said. The victim was transported to Hartford Hospital.

Police notified Gordon’s employer and found him in Hartford, at his next appointment.

Gordon was charged with first-degree sexual assault and second-degree unlawful restraint and police.

Bond was originally set at $250,000, but was raised to $750,000. Gordon was arrested last year on domestic violence charges, as well as violation of a protective order.

Gordon said he cannot post bond and fears he will lose his job and his home.

A manager from his employer, Eastern Video Services, was also in court, but would not comment.

Police reccomend that you have someone with you when someone when workers come to your house.
