A New Haven man working at a Hamden car was was arrested by members of the United States Marshal Service Connecticut Violent Fugitive Task Force this week on a warrant for the Collier County, Florida’s Sheriff’s Office charging capital sexual battery of a child under 12 years old.
On Tuesday the task force, on which Hamden Police Det. Raymond Quinn is a member, arrested Juan Posada-Hernandez, 29, of 168 Blatchley Ave., New Haven, at a Hamden car wash where he was working. He was charged with being a Fugitive from Justice.
According to the Collier County Sheriff's Office incident report, the charges stem from an Oct. 13, 2005 incident when Posada-Hernandez, then 21, allegedly sexually assaulted his girlfriend's daughter while the girlfriend was in the hospital giving birth to his baby.
The report was made in 2008 and Posada-Hernandez's girlfriend told police then that the last time she had seen him was when he had been arrested on domestic battery charges against her, according to the report.
