ORONO, Maine — A local man was arrested for felony unlawful sexual contact late Friday after he broke into a sleeping woman’s home and touched her inappropriately, Orono police Capt. Josh Ewing said Monday.
“He climbed into bed with her” and then assaulted her, the police captain said. “She woke up and told him to leave.”
Ewing didn’t want to go into detail about how the 22-year-old female was assaulted, saying only that Aaron J. Olivares, 35, was charged with a felony.
Police were contacted at around 9 p.m. Friday and shortly afterward arrested Olivares. They charged him with aggravated criminal trespass and felony unlawful sexual contact and took him to Penobscot County Jail in Bangor.
The victim has seen Olivares before at the park but “she didn’t even know his name,” Ewing said.
Olivares has several convictions, including one for disorderly conduct in August, according to prior court listings printed in the Bangor Daily News.
He was convicted in February 2007 for two counts of operating a vehicle while under influence of intoxicants, driving with a suspended license and violating his conditions of release.
Olivares also has violation of a protective order conviction from May 2006, the BDN listings state.
Olivares remained in jail on Monday, a jail official said. If convicted of the felony charges, he faces a penalty of up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
