A 23-year-old man has been charged with assaulting a female juvenile while she was visiting her family last Thanksgiving.

Joseph Carey of Bridgeport surrendered to police Tuesday after a warrant for his arrest was issued following a nearly year-long investigation into the incident by the Police Department's Detective Bureau Youth Division.

Carey choked and sexually assaulted the girl, police said, and was charged with first-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor.

He was released after posting $100,000 bond and is scheduled to appear Nov. 1 in Norwalk Superior Court.
