Two men have been arrested after a 15-year-old boy reported to Danbury Police that he had a sexual encounter with the men after meeting them through the Grindr app over the summer.
The boy and his parents went to the Danbury Police Department just after midnight on July 12 and told officers he had a sexual encounter with two men around five hours earlier, according to police.
The Special Victims Unit of the Danbury Police Department started investigating and police said they identified the suspects as 31-year-old Jamal Jackson, of Brookfield, and 56-year-old Timothy Connolly, of New Milford.
On Thursday, detectives from the Special Victims Unit found Jackson at Danbury Superior Court while he was appearing for an unrelated case and took him into custody.
Connolly turned himself in to Danbury police Friday after learning there was a warrant for his arrest warrant.
Jackson was charged with sexual assault in the second degree, risk of injury and impairing the morals of a child and risk of injury and illegal sexual contact with a child.
Connolly was charged with sexual assault in the second degree and risk of injury and illegal sexual contact with a child.
No attorney is listed for Jackson and there is no online court record for Connolly.
Bond for both was set at $35,000.
