The former manager of Shelton restaurant was arrested Thursday after police said he inappropriately touched and sexually harassed employees "on several occasions."

Police charged 58-year-old Bryan Stockbridge with three counts of fourth-degree sexual assault.

The arrest of Stockbridge comes after an investigation in March 2016.

Bryan Stockbridge is the ex-manager of Dee’s Kitchen on Howe Avenue and three employees of the restaurant came forward to police to report that he inappropriately touched and sexually harassed them.

Police learned that after the detectives interviewed Stockbridge, he fled to California. However, an arrest warrant for Stockbridge was secured by police and arrested him when they learned he was living in Ansonia.

Stockbridge was released after he posted a $5,000 bond. He is expected to be arraigned in Derby Superior Court on Friday.
