Bridgeport Man Charged With Raping 8-year old Girl

A 34-year-old Bridgeport man has been charged with raping an 8-year-old girl.

Police arrested Juan Walsh on Thursday after an investigation that began in April after the girl was brought to Bridgeport Hospital after complaining about her baby sitter to her grandmother.

Police say Walsh, who watched the girl while her mother was at work, showed her pornography on his computer before assaulting her.

Police say the girl told them Walsh had threatened to harm the girl’s mother if she told her what he had done.

Walsh is being held in lieu of $250,000 bond and is due back in court on July 26. It was not clear if he has an attorney.
