A 30-year-old Biro Street man faces sexual assault charges stemming from incidents involving an underage girl.
Arterio Ahmid Johnson was charged Tuesday with three counts each of risk of injury to a minor and second-degree sexual assault, and one count of breach of peace.
Johnson was picked up in Boston on Tuesday where he was in court to answer a charge of failure file register as a sex offender, police said. That charge was dismissed and Johnson was released in the custody of Fairfield police.
The charges stem from an investigation that began in May with a call from a counselor at her Fairfield school after a 15-year-old student reported being assaulted by Johnson. The two are acquaintances, police said.
Johnson, who police said had an ongoing sexual relationship with the 15-year-old after he got out of prison in January, flew into a jeolous rage after seeing the names of boys in the girl's cell phone contact list, according to the arrest warrant.
The girl met Johnson at a mutual friend's home in Fairfield after he had served a six-month prison term on assault and risk of injury to a minor charges, the warrant states. She said they often went to an abandoned house to have sex, although on May 1 she told police she and Johnson had sex on the front lawn of her home, the affidavit states.
On May 3, after one of their trysts, the affidavit states that Johnson grabbed the teen's cell phone and began to go through its address book. The affidavit states that he became enraged when he saw that she had been texting other boys, prompting him to grab her and thrown her on the ground.
The girl reported the incident to a school counselor the next day.
During the investigation into the incident, the teen's father filed for a restraining order against Johnson, who police said has additional arrest records in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Georgia.
