BRIDGEPORT — A 26-year-old city man was arrested this week on charges he had sex with a then-14-year-old girl he “friended” on Facebook.
Jean Eugene, of Ogden Street, was charged with second-degree sexual assault, risk of injury to a minor and with using a computer to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity.
He was held on $100,000 bond.
According to police, the victim’s father first contacted police in November after learning that his 14-year-old daughter had been seeing a 26-year-old.
During a forensic interview, the girl stated that she was at first reluctant when Eugene first friended her on the social media site but ultimately began having regular conversations on the phone and Internet.
He started coming to her home on weeknights when her parents were not home. They had sex several times, she stated.
When questioned by police, Eugene stated that he had sex with the victim three or four times and stated that he loved the girl and wants to be with her. He said he used a condom whenever they had intercourse.
