NORWALK, Conn. -- A Stamford man who is a registered sex offender was arrested by Norwalk police and U.S. Marshals in Milford on Friday, police said.

Scott Cogswell, 24, of Stamford was charged with first-degree failure to appear. He was held on $200,000 bond and will appear in court Aug. 12.

Cogswell was found guilty in 2008 of illegal sexual contact with a victim under 16 and fourth-degree sexual assault. He was also convicted in 2012 of failure to register as a sex offender. After missing a court appearance, a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Norwalk Officer Anthony DePanfilis, who is assigned to the U.S. Marshal Service Violent Fugitive Task Force, found Cogswell at a location on Old Gate Road in Milford on Friday, according to police.

Norwalk police and U.S. Marshals took Cogswell into custody without incident.

There is nothing more important than being safe. Right now sex offenders are everywhere and we can never predict what will happen to us . I found a safety application on android phone that helps me track sex offenders on my phone, and just a click on a panic button and it could automatically create a conference call to a 24/7 call center, a safety network and could escalate a call to a nearest 911 if it's a real emergency, check this site out for more information http://safekidzone.com/#!/page_home

Thank You U.S. Marshals
