WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (AP) — Police investigating the brutal rape of an 81-year-old woman in Windsor Locks have arrested a former Connecticut state police trooper.

Police said on Saturday that 43-year-old Jeffrey Laporto of Windsor was charged with two counts of first-degree sexual assault and one count of first-degree unlawful restraint. He is held on $250,000 bond and will appear in court Monday.

Police allege Laporto met the victim at a local bar. A conversation that ensued led to both going to her hotel room just after midnight Friday.

The victim’s son called police about two hours later reporting the rape. Police say she was taken to hospital for treatment of “extensive internal injuries.”

It was not immediately clear if Laporto has a lawyer.

Local news outlets identified Laporto as a former state trooper.
