    A 60-year-old New London, Connecticut, woman was sexually assaulted in a home invasion Saturday night and her suspected assailant is under arrest.

    Luis Rosario, 32, of New London is facing multiple charges including home invasion and sexual assault after police say he attacked a woman from behind when she was returning home at 9:05 p.m. Saturday, forced her into the house with him and sexually assaulted her.
