84-Year-Old Man Arrested In Repeated Assaults Of Young Relative

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ An 84-year-old man has been arrested by Bridgeport police on charges that he sexually assaulted a young female relative over several years.

Police say Joseph Livramento had been living in Cape Verde off the coast of Africa but returned to Connecticut and was arrested Thursday when he went to a doctor’s office for an appointment.

Livramento was held on $350,000 bond. It was not immediately clear whether he has an attorney.

The victim told investigators that Livramento assaulted her over many years at her home in Bridgeport and during family trips to Cape Verde.

Livramento was wanted on a 2007 arrest warrant. He faces charges including first-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor.
