MILFORD, Conn. — A 26-year-old man was arrested after he grabbed a woman's butt and bumped her with his crotch while she was shopping with a child at the Connecticut Post Mall in Milford, police said.

Milford Police responded to the mall at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 5.

A woman told police that while shopping with her 6-year-old child at a mall kiosk, a man bumped into her. When she turned around, she noticed there was no reason for the man to bump her, police said.

But shortly thereafter, "the male once again bumped into the female, this time more forceful and grabbed her buttocks," police said. "The female turned around and believed the man purposefully bumped into her with his penis."

The victim then saw the suspect as he moved through the mall and "interacted with other unknowing females in the same manner," police said.

Mall security watched the suspect until police arrived.

Police arrested Jose Luis Sahagun, 26, of 512 Ferry St., New Haven, and charged him with fourth-degree sexual assault and risk of injury. He was held on $2,500 bond to appear in Milford Superior Court on Aug. 7.
