A Hamden man is facing charges after he reportedly inappropriately touched a teen who was inside his car.
Police said on June 8 the teen was walking in the rain on Woodin Street when Dennis Ciardiello asked him if he wanted a ride. Ciardiello asked the teen this through his home window.
The teen accepted, and when they reached the teen’s destination, Ciardiello reportedly wouldn’t let the teen out of the car.
Police said Ciardiello inappropriately touched the teen and had asked him to watch pornography.
The teen was ultimately able to get out of the car.
Police arrested Ciardiello on Monday. He was charged with risk of injury to a minor and first-degree unlawful restraint.
He is expected to appear in court on Sept. 19.
