A Meriden man is facing charges after police say he molested two children ages 10 and 12 over the span of several years.
Antonio Montesdeoca, 22, of Bunker Avenue in Meriden, was arrested Monday and charged with numerous sex crimes in connection with the assaults.
Police said Montesdeoca began molesting the two children, whom he knew, in 2009 and continued molesting them over the next few years.
He has been charged with first-degree sexual assault, fourth-degree sexual assault, two counts of risk of injury to a minor and second-degree threatening. Bond was set at a total of $300,000.
Montesdeoca was due in court Wednesday.
