The Manchester firefighter accused of a series of sexual assaults in Manchester and Vernon in the 2000s appeared before a judge on Friday.
Alleano appeared via video from the Hartford courthouse holding cell before a Hartford judge.
Citing the seriousness of the charges and the strength of the state's case, Tolland state's attorney Matthew Gedansky asked the judge for a $5 million bond. Gedansky said Alleano would be a threat to the community if he was released.
A public defender assigned to the case said Alleano is a father of two and a family man.
The judge set bail at $1 million.
Police in Manchester and Vernon Police made the arrest after investigating a series of residential burglaries in which the suspect sexually assaulted his victims, police said. The victims include an 84-year-old woman, a 57-year-old woman and a woman in her 30s.
Investigators said they got a break in the case with the help of a grant and DNA a genealogy service.
Alleano has been a Manchester firefighter for 24 years. He has been put on administrative leave, according to the Manchester Fire Department.
