REDDING — The Redding Police Department announced the arrest of David Birkrant, 45, of Ridgefield, following a three-month investigation into a reported sexual assault at a Days Inn in February.

The investigation, initiated after receiving information from the Bergen County, New Jersey Prosecutor’s Office, involved state and federal law enforcement partners.

Birkrant turned himself in to police on June 11.

He faces multiple charges, including employing a minor in an obscene performance, sexual assault in the second degree, commercial sexual abuse of a minor, injury or risk of injury to children, soliciting sexual acts, and harmful communications with a minor.

Birkrant was held on a $250,000 bond, which he was unable to post, and was transported to Danbury Superior Court for arraignment the same day.

The investigation remains active, and no additional information has been released.
