VERNON — A Rockville man who was arrested last month for allegedly exposing himself to a sleeping teen was charged with sexual assault on Wednesday for allegedly abusing another girl, police said.

Daniel Wine, 45, is facing 16 new charges, including four counts of first-degree sexual assault, five counts of risk of injury to a minor and one count of fourth-degree sexual assault, police said.

Wine has been in the custody of the Department of Correction since his arrest on March 5, police said. He was previously charged with fourth-degree sexual assault, attempted sexual assault and illegal sexual contact, according to court records.

Police said that Wine was arrested in March as the result of a lengthy investigation into an incident that was reported to police in May 2013. The alleged victim, a 14-year-old girl, told police that while she was sleeping at Wine’s house, he put his finger in her mouth and exposed his penis.

After Wine’s arrest, a second girl came forward and said that Wine had sexually abused her for several years, according to police. The victim said that she was younger than 12 years old at the time of the abuse, police said.

Wine is being held on a combined bail of $235,000, police said.

This case remains under investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact Detective John Divenere, 860-872-9126 ext. 216, police said.
