ENFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

A man in Enfield is accused of sexually assaulting a minor, according to police.

Michael Metta, who trained for the volunteer Hazardville Fire Department, was picked up on a warrant Thursday night.

Metta was charged with first-degree sexual assault, second-degree sexual assault, third-degree sexual assault, fourth-degree sexual assault, illegal sexual contact with a minor and risk of injury to a minor.

Hazardville's fire chief told Eyewitness News that Metta joined the department in April 2014 and was there for less than a year.

The chief said he was a probationary member, which meant he was a firefighter in training. He was never certified.

Metta was due in Enfield Superior Court Friday morning.
