Westport police have arrested a man wanted in California for sexually abusing a child. 39-year old Jean-Paul Borowiec was taken into custody in the parking lot of the Stop and Shop on the Post Road.
Investigators say Borowiec was uncooperative and interfered with their investigation. His companion, Pamela Wall was also arrested and charged with interfering with an officer.
The fugitive warrant was issued in California in May and Westport authorities learned last month that Borowiec might be in the area. His last known address was a homeless shelter in Santa Monica, Calif.
He was being held in lieu of $500,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Superior Court in Norwalk on Tuesday.
