Jeffrey Brisson - Baby Raper - Faces 100 new charges

Police said they have identified more underage victims of sexual abuse by a 30-year-old man already charged with sexually assaulting several children.

Jeffrey Brisson, who lived at an apartment on Washington Street, faces more than 100 new counts of sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor.

Investigators identified new victims after combing through computer-related evidence seized from Brisson's apartment in January. Police continue investigating the identities of more potential victims and said they expect to file additional charges.

Brisson and his roommate, Harold Spurling, were arrested in January during a raid of their apartment that was prompted by a tip and evidence that the suspects had sexually assaulted a 14-year-old boy, police said.

They were charged with multiple counts of first-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor, as well as tampering with evidence and interfering with a search warrant. It was unclear Tuesday whether Spurling would face additional charges.

Officers arrived at their apartment with a search warrant in time to stop the men from encrypting the child pornography on their computer, police have said. They also found a 3-month-old girl in the apartment and a video of one of the suspects sexually assaulting her, police said.

The girl is the daughter of an acquaintance of the suspects. She was taken to a hospital for a medical exam and then released to her mother, police said.

Anyone with information regarding Brisson or Spurling is asked to call New Britain police at 860-826-3065.
