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.
