Police Charge Man in Child Sex Assault

Numerous calls identified Windsor resident as man who exposed himself to young girls at Westfarms Sunday.

Farmington Police have arrested a suspect in connection with the June 10 sexual assault of a 6-year-old girl at the Go Calendar store, at Westfarms mall after police received numerous calls identifying the suspect from video surveillance.

Alan Stuart Hickey, 50, of Windsor, was charged with risk of injury to a minor, sexual assault 3rd degree, and public indecency and taken into custody Tuesday around 7 p.m. by Connecticut State Police and Mohegan Sun Police at the Mohegan Sun Casino. He is being held on $200,000 court-set bond and is being arraigned today at Hartford Superior Court.

Police, with the help of the public, identified Hickey as the man on video surveillance that allegedly exposed his penis to a young girl and forced her to touch it in the Go Calendar store on Sunday. Police believe there may have been other victims.

Police learned of Hickey’s last known address and began surveillance while obtaining search and arrest warrants. Police also began tracking Hickey electronically and learned he was at the Mohegan Sun Casino.

According to police, a friend told Hickey he was wanted by police, so then he cut his hair and shaved his facial hair in an apparent attempt to conceal his identity.

Police executed search warrants on Hickey’s residence and vehicle, and recovered several items of evidence.

Farmington Police are asking anyone with additional information to contact them at 860-675-2400 or on their tip line at 860-675-2483. Witnesses can remain anonymous.

I hope prison has the cure to this guys pedophile instincts, I'm sure it does. As for West Farms, seems the place is a magnet for freaks.

What ever happened with the Granby teacher who was arrested for sexual assault of several students? Last I heard, he was still on suspension from his school job.

Oh I think this guy's dance card will be full where he's going. At the risk of being a lightening rod, I have to say, where was the parent of this child for this encounter to have taken place long enough for Hickey to engage the girl, commit the assault and walk out of the store unnoticed. Reports indicate the child informed the mother IN THE CAR RIDE ON THE WAY HOME! Parents - watch your children - you never know who else might be!

Has he done this before? The article mentions that police tracked him electronically. Did he have some sort of tracking device that he as required to wear or does it mean police were able to track him through another way(cell phone, phone records)?

Yes, I am sure that his being raped in prison will "cure" him. Yes, he's sick and should be punished, but do you really think future anal raping will make him better? Come on...
