Veteran cop accused of raping Girl, 11: Sgt. Ivan Delgado Bio, Wiki, Age
Ivan Delgado is a veteran Connecticut police officer was ordered Monday to stay away from an 11-year-old girl and her family after the girl accused him of raping her repeatedly, the Fairfield Citizen reports
Bridgeport Police Sgt. Ivan Delgado has been charged with three counts of first-degree sexual assault and three counts of risk of injury to a minor. He was arrested Friday and released after posting a $250,000 bond pending Monday’s arraignment hearing.
Delgado, who has been with the department for 13 years, is on administrative leave without pay, CT Post said.
The state Department of Children and Families notified Bridgeport police on Aug. 29 that the girl’s mother had reported that Delgado, an acquaintance of the family, had raped her daughter, says an affidavit attached to the warrant for arrest.
The girl told interviewers that Delgado had touched her inappropriately several times and that the severity had increased recently. The affidavit says that a few days before the report, the girl was at Delgado’s house and he took her to his room and told her that he found her “so sexy.” Then, he said, he raped her while she begged him to stop.
The affidavit also says that the girl demonstrated what Delgado did with an anatomically correct doll. She called him “a very nice person who is sick in the head,” according to the affidavit.
Fellow officers confronted him about the accusation, the affidavit says, and he denied raping the girl, saying he had never been alone with her.
Delgado remains free on bail and will return to court to plead guilty on October 6.
The CT Post said Delgado was promoted to sergeant in 2014 and was charged with assaulting a locked-up man in 2016. He was placed in administrative duties at the time and the city settled a federal lawsuit that charged Delgado with violating the man’s civil rights.
