Police in Hamden said a local teenager has been accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl.
Officials said the investigation was launched in August when the parents of the girl met with police and told them their daughter was assaulted.
Through the investigation, police said it was learned that the girl went with three people, including Cameron Hough, 19, to an isolated area along Dixwell Avenue where she said she was assaulted inside a "cement tube" near a store.
Police said a warrant was issued for Hough and he was arrested Monday after turning himself in to police.
He was charged with first-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor.
He was held on $150,000 bond and was expected to appear in court on Nov. 25.
