EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - State police charged a 16-year-old boy with sexually assaulting a woman in a commuter parking lot in East Hartford, only hours after he was arrested in connection with a home invasion and sexual assault in the same town.

Authorities announced the charges in the commuter lot case Friday. The teen was to appear before a Juvenile Court judge in Hartford on Friday in both cases. His name wasn’t released because of juvenile offender laws.

State police say a woman was sexually assaulted in the early morning hours of Sept. 3 in the commuter lot off Route 15. Another woman was sexually assaulted by a suspect who broke into her East Hartford home on Sept. 19.

The teen was charged Thursday with attempted murder and sexual assault in both cases.
