Bridgeport police officer charged with sexual assault ordered to stay away from girl

BRIDGEPORT — A veteran city police officer was ordered Monday to stay away from an 11-year-old girl who claims the officer repeatedly raped her.

Police Sgt. Ivan Delgado, wearing a face mask, stood behind a plexiglass screen as he was arraigned on three counts of first-degree sexual assault and three counts of risk of injury to a minor.

During the brief hearing, Superior Court Judge Tracy Lee Dayton issued a protective order barring the 52-year-old Delgado from having any further contact with the victim and her family.

Delgado’s lawyer, John R. Gulash, told the judge that Delgado had already surrendered his firearms as required by the order.

The judge continued the case for a plea on Oct. 6.

Gulash and Delgado declined comment as they left the Golden Hill Street courthouse. Delgado is free on $250,000 bond.

Delgado, a 13-year member of the Bridgeport Police Department, has been placed on administrative leave without pay.

On Aug. 29, Bridgeport police received notice from the state Department of Children and Families that the mother of an 11-year-old girl was reporting her daughter had been raped by Delgado, according to the arrest warrant affidavit.

During a forensic interview, the girl told them Delgado, who is acquainted with the girl’s family, touched her inappropriately a number of times and the severity of the assaults had increased recently, the affidavit said.

A few days before the assaults were reported, the affidavit said, the girl told investigators that she had been at Delgado’s home when he pulled her into his bedroom. She said he told her he found her “so sexy” and then raped her as she begged him to stop, the affidavit said.

According to the affidavit, the girl demonstrated for investigators what Delgado — who she described as “a very nice person who is sick in the head” — did to her on an anatomically accurate doll.

When his fellow officers confronted him with the allegations, the affidavit states that Delgado denied sexually assaulting the girl and told police he had never been alone with her.
