Danbury Police have arrested a 33-year old man on several counts of sexual assault and impairing the morals of a minor. Police received a complaint in November 2019 about the abuse of a 12-year old girl. The suspect was identified as Jaun Perez-Barbahona. Detectives learned that the offenses spanned several years. An 11-year-old female was also identified as an additional victim. Several attempts to locate Perez-Barbahona were unsuccessful and Immigration and Customs Enforcement later confirmed he fled the country days after the initial complaint was made. A warrant for his arrest was granted last April. Earlier this month Danbury Police received a notice from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol that Perez-Barbahona was being detained in Texas. On Friday, Danbury Police took custody of Perez-Barbahona and transported him back to Connecticut, where he is currently being held on a court set bond of $250,000. He face 3 counts of Sexual Assault 1st Degree, 3 counts of Sexual Assault 4th Degree, 7 counts of Risk of Injury: Sexual Contact, and 7 counts of Risk of Injury: Impairing the Morals of a Minor.
