By Lookout Staff

August 4, 2011 -- Police in Wesport, Connecticut this week arrested a 39 year-old former Santa Monica transient suspected of molesting children.

Jean-Paul Borowiec, who, according to the Associated Press was last registered at a “homeless shelter in Santa Monica,” is expected to be extradited to California.

After responding to complaints about the man in a grocery store parking lot, Wesport police discovered that Borowiec was wanted on charges of sexual abuse in Sonoma County, news sources said.

According to The Stamford Advocate, he will be extradited and tried for allegedly assaulting two boys and a girl ages 3, 5 and 7 years old.

However, when the Petaluma Police Department issued a warrant for his arrest in May, he had already left the area.

Borowiec was charged with being a fugitive from justice and interfering with an officer. He is being held on $500,000 bond, according to Wesport police.

His girlfriend, Pamela Josephine Wail, 42, of Venice, also was charged with interfering with the investigation. She was released on condition she appear in court August 8, police said.

Wail told police the couple was not running from the law.
