    Authorities arrested a satellite television installer Tuesday for allegedly sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl in a New Jersey home. 

    Arcadio "Junior" Nova, 38, was preparing to install DirecTV inside a Paterson home July 3 when he sexually assaulted the child, prosecutors said. He was working as an independent contractor and was not dispatched by the company. 

    Nova, who lives in Washington Heights in New York City, was charged with several counts of sexual assault, luring and endangering the welfare of a child. Attorney information wasn't immediately available, and no one answered the door at his listed address.

    DirecTV said it was looking into the matter and had no one by that name as an employee or authorized technician.
