A 23-year-old man was arrested in an alleged sex assault that happened six years ago.

Willimantic police said Hector Novoa was charged with first-degree sex assault, use of force and unlawful restraint.

The incident reportedly happened in July of 2010 at Lauter Park in Willimantic.

Police said both Novoa and the victim were juveniles at the time.

According to police, Novoa eluded police for years and was involved in a traffic stop in Willimantic on Sunday night. It was then that police served an arrest warrant.

Novoa was held on a $100,000 bond and appeared in court on Monday morning.
