Burrillville police arrest Connecticut man in sexual assault case


BURRILLVILLE – A Connecticut man was arrested this week in the investigation of a sexual assault of a Burrillville boy that dates back to October.

Christopher Michaelson, 35, of Guilford, Conn. was arrested on Wednesday, Jan. 9 on charges of first-degree child molestation, second-degree child molestation, enticement of a minor in the first degree and indecent solicitation of a child.

Guilford police were reportedly asked for assistance in the case in October and have worked with Burrillville police on the investigation. The assault allegedly stemmed from an internet contact followed by an in person meeting in Burrillville.

Michaelson is being held on a $250,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned in New Haven, Conn. on Jan. 10 if he does not make bond.
