MIDDLETOWN - Police in Connecticut say a man has been charged with assaulting an 11-year-old girl.

The Hartford Courant reports that 24-year-old Amilcar Lopez was arrested over the weekend on charges of third-degree assault and risk of injury to a minor. He is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.

Police say officers were called to a Middletown home on Saturday for a report of an emotionally disturbed person threatening family members. They say officers determined Lopez had punched the girl in the stomach.

Police say Lopez denied any wrongdoing.

It couldn't be determined Monday if he has an attorney.
