BRIDGEPORT — A New York man has been charged with sexually assaulting two young Trumbull girls and with possessing nearly five pounds of marijuana in his car, police said.

Nicholas R. Hall, 26, of Wallkill, N.Y., was charged with first-degree sexual assault, fourth-degree sexual assault and two counts of risk of injury to a child in the assault case. He was also charged with operating a drug factory and possession of marijuana.

“How you all doing?” Hall asked during his arraignment in state Superior Court on Friday.

Assistant State’s Attorney Felicia Valentino urged Judge Kevin Russo to set a high bond because of the serious allegations.

The judge agreed and set bond for Hall at $250,000 which he later posted.

The judge, at the urging of the sex assault victims’ lawyer, Audrey Felsen, also issued an order barring Hall from having any further contact with the victims.

Felsen declined comment after the hearing.

Trumbull police said on May 22, a woman complained that her two daughters, aged 9 and 6, had been sexually assaulted.

Police said the girls detailed how Hall had sexually assaulted them on a number of occasions while he was babysitting them when their mother was at work.

On June 11, police said, they arrested Hall as he drove into a driveway in Trumbull. Inside his car police said they found packages containing nearly five pounds of marijuana.
