Suspect in Putnam Child Sex Assault Taken Into Custody in Florida

A former Putnam man who is accused of sexually assaulting a child in Putnam was taken into custody in Florida. 

Police said officers arrested 50-year-old Howard Williams III Monday and there is an active warrant charging him with a sexual assault in the first degree and risk of injury to a minor. 

The arrest warrant was issued after the Putnam police started investigating a report of a sexual assault of a minor in August 2018. 

Williams was located in Florida and Florida authorities took him into custody. 

On Monday, he was extradited back to Connecticut where the arrest warrant was served. 

Williams was held on a court set bond of $85,000.00.
