TRUMBULL, Conn. -- A carnival worker wanted on sexual assault charges in New York was arrested in Trumbull last week, according to the Trumbull Times.

New York state police contacted the Trumbull Police Department, informing them that 58-year-old Roy Hillyard was wanted on two counts of sexual assault and was working for an amusement ride company at the Trumbull Fall Festival, the Trumbull Times reported.

Police responded to the Trumbull Fall Festival at Trumbull High School on Thursday, the day before the festival opened, and took Hillyard into custody, according to the Trumbull Times.

Hillyard was charged by Trumbull Police as a fugitive from justice, and will be extradited to face the sexual assault charges, according to the Trumbull Times.
