MILFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut girl has told police that a man sexually assaulted her more than 50 times.

Police say 37-year-old Pawel Dabrowski, of Shelton, has been charged with multiple counts of first-degree sexual assault and illegal sexual contact.

The teenager and her mother contacted police about the alleged abuse on Aug. 3, which the girl says began when she was 10 years old. Police did not specify her current age.

Police say Dabrowski knew the girl.

Dabrowski is being detained on $250,000 bond pending a Sept. 5 court appearance. No attorney was listed for Dabrowski in online court records.

He is a native of Poland and a judge says he must surrender his passport before he can be released.
