MERIDEN — Local police say a suspect in multiple child assaults was arrested Friday.

Adam Fountain, 35, has been charged with three counts of first-degree assault, three counts of second-degree assault, four counts of third-degree assault and one count of fourth-degree assault, according to police. However, police said additional charges are expected to be filed as the investigation is still active.

In July, the Meriden Police Department’s Special Crimes Unit began investigating allegations that multiple children had been sexually abused, police said. The detectives then sought and obtained a warrant for Fountain’s arrest. Officers from the Special Crimes Unit and Crime Suppression Unit worked together to detain him, police said.

After his arrest, Fountain was held on $150,000 bail, police said. Police have not provided his residence, but records show that he is a resident of Meriden.
