A Naugatuck man was charged with sexual battery on a victim less than 12 years old after an arrest in Southington on Saturday.
The Southington Police Department received information from Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office in Tampa, Fla. about a warrant for Thomas Mullins. Southington officers located Mullins in the Southington Motor Lodge and arrested him without incident.
Mullins was charged with being a fugitive from justice. He also faces two counts of sexual battery on a victim less than 12 years old in Florida.
Mullins was scheduled to be arraigned at Bristol Superior Court on Monday "to answer the current charge and await extradition to Florida," police said.
Mullins is being held on a million dollar bond.
