A West Haven man has been arrested in connection with the sexual assault of a young girl that police say went on for several years.
Mark Kavanah, 49, will be arraigned today in Milford Superior Court on charges of second- and third-degree sexual assault, risk of injury to a minor, threatening and disorderly conduct.
A lengthy investigation involving several law enforcement agencies began when the girl’s pastor reported the incidents to police, said Sgt. David Tammaro, the West Haven police spokesman.
The girl had confided the attacks to her pastor, police said. The girl is now 16 years old.
Tammaro said the case involves domestic violence, but that no further information will be released.
