A VETERAN cop is accused of dragging the 11-year-old daughter of a family friend into a bedroom and raping her – after allegedly saying the child was "so sexy".
Ivan Delgado, 52, was ordered to stay away from the girl who claims the officer repeatedly raped her, according to the Fairfield Citizen.
During an interview with the state Department of Children and Families, the young girl claimed Delgado, who is known to her family, touched her inappropriately a number of times.
She claimed the severity of the assaults had increased recently.
The girl told investigators that she had been at Delgado’s home when he pulled her into his bedroom, according to the arrest warrant affidavit.
She claimed he told her he found her “so sexy” and then raped her as she begged him to stop.
'SICK IN THE HEAD'
The young child used a doll to demonstrate to investigators what Delgado did to her.
She called him “a very nice person who is sick in the head”, according to the affidavit.
The girl's mother had reported the incident on August 29 to the state Department of Children and Families, who then informed Bridgeport police department.
When confronted by fellow officers with the allegations, Delgado reportedly denied sexually assaulting the girl and told police he had never been alone with her.
The police sergeant was charged with three counts of first-degree sexual assault and three counts of risk of injury to minor.
He was arrested on Friday and released after posting a $250,000 bond.
Delgado, who has been with Bridgeport police department for 13 years, has been placed on administrative leave without pay.
He had been promoted to sergeant six years ago.
