Suspect Arrested in Rape of Eight-Year-Old
Vernon and Manchester police have arrested a suspect in the rape of an eight year old girl. Police say their request for public help in locating 38-year-old Edward Lester led to tips from the public that he had been seen at a variety of location. They located him at the home of a friend on Cedar Street in Manchester.
Police and the Department of Children and Families began their investigation of Lester four months ago.
