DANBURY — Authorities rescued a trafficked and endangered child Wednesday morning and charged a city man with first-degree sexual assault, according to a release from the U.S. Marshals Service.

Authorities said in the process of recovering the child, they arrested 35-year-old Wayne Marcell Wednesday morning around 8:30 a.m., the release read. Marcell was also charged with risk of injury to a child after the joint operation with Danbury police.

“The U.S. Marshals Service in the District of Connecticut would like to commend the hard work and dedication of all the law enforcement professionals involved in this case,” said U.S. Marshal for the District of Connecticut Lawrence Bobnick in the release. “With its nationwide reach and investigative focus, the USMS appreciates opportunities such as this case to rescue innocent victims from their abductors.”

The investigation comes after “Operation Not Forgotten 2021,” which recovered 20 endangered children in the Altanta area in May, the U.S. Marhsals Service said.

Sixteen of those who were recovered “were suspected victims of sex trafficking,” the release said.

The U.S. Marshals Service said these children were “considered to be some of the most at-risk and challenging recovery cases in the area.”
