Middlebury Police have arrested a Wallingford Public Schools teacher on charges of second-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor.

Police say Mario Fusco, 35, of Middlebury turned himself in Tuesday following a complaint on Sunday and a search of his St. Joseph Avenue home in which several items were taken which may be linked to the case.

Police say the allegations involve an individual between the ages of 14 and 19 who was apparently not a student in the Wallingford school district.

Fusco is free on $10,000 cash bond pending arraignment Wednesday in Waterbury Superior Court.
