Westport Man Arrested for Child Sexual Abuse

The man was held on $150,000 bond after being arrested on two felony charges.


Westport police arrested a 67-year-old Westport man Monday on child sexual abuse charges that reportedly occurred while he was babysitting at his home, police said. 

The arrest occurred after Westport police received a complaint from the Department of Children and Families (DCF) regarding allegations of the suspected child sexual abuse case, according to Westport Police Captain Sam Arciola.

Westport police received the complaint on Dec. 26 and on Monday the Westport Police Department Detective Bureau executed an arrest and search warrant on Victor Corso at his Hillandale residence in Westport, according to Arciola.

Child sexual abuse is a very complex problem, so we really need to teach our children how they can avoid these circumstances. Even the adults we trust to protect our children can't always be trusted. I am a mother and I am afraid that on the next day, my daughter will be one of the victim of this horrifying incident. So I thought of looking up for safety application that would do so. Luckily, I have searched and found this cellphone based application that provides safety and protection for my daughter. This application is so much better than any other services I know. A lot of useful features rolled to this application. My daughter and so my whole family will now be alerted when they are near on a danger zones and show its approximate. I have less worries now that I had before because I know that my daughter can alert me whenever she needs help or when she's in danger by only pressing the panic button on her phone. And if really needed, the call will also be routed to the nearest 911 station with the complete information of whom presses the panic button. It's all worth it! Parents should also try this cool application. Check it here: http://safekidzone.com/
