STAMFORD -- A 28-year-old Norwalk man employed as a driver for a non-profit agency was arrested Sunday on a warrant claiming he sexually assaulted a developmentally disabled woman at a group home in Stamford where she lived, according to police.
Wanto Polynice, of 33 Fairfield Ave., Norwalk is alleged to have assaulted the woman last Tuesday at an unidentified group home which housed five developmentally disabled adult women, and where Polynice had unsupervised access to the residents, according to Stamford police.
Polynice was employed by the nonprofit, which assists developmentally disabled adults, according to police. The name of the agency and other details about the crime were not available Sunday.
Members of the Norwalk Police Special Services Unit arrested Polynice at his home Sunday morning without incident, before turning him over to Stamford police. He has been suspended from his job, according to police.
The victim of the attack was treated and released from an area hospital last Tuesday for non-life threatening injuries from the assault, according to police.
Polynice is being held on $250,000 bond, and is to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford April 8, according to police.
