WATERTOWN, CT (WFSB) -

Members of the Watertown Police Department said they arrested a man accused of sexually assaulting a minor.

Police said on Wednesday they arrested Harold Winnie, 65, and charged him with first-degree sexual assault, third-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor following an investigation.

They said a female juvenile, who they are only identifying as someone under 16 years old, told a family member she was sexually assaulted by Winnie, and they called police.

Winnie is known to the victim, police said, but is not a family member.

The investigation uncovered that the sexual assault occurred several years ago inside his home.

It's unknown if anyone else may have been a victim.
