An aide on a school bus taking a 9-year-old boy from Stamford to Trumbull was in Darien when he was caught on surveillance video biting the child, Darien police said.

The 27-year-old Bridgeport man is also accused of hitting the boy, who has autism, with a phone and even licking his face and wiping mucus on him over the previous three weeks, police said. Police did not say whether any of those alleged acts were also recorded on video.
