ORONO, Maine — A 22-year-old Austin Lane resident pulled a handgun on the next-door neighbor who allegedly crawled into her bed and touched her in a sexual manner on Friday.
Pointing the unloaded .45-caliber weapon she keeps on her nightstand at Aaron J. Olivares, 35, of Orono, the victim forced him to leave her trailer, according to an affidavit filed Monday at the Penobscot Judicial Center.
Olivares, who was arrested Friday by Orono police and charged with unlawful sexual contact, was released Monday on $300 bail after his first court appearance. His bail conditions include living in Bangor, seeking counseling and having no contact with victim.
According to the affidavit, Olivares denied touching his neighbor sexually. He told police that he went into her trailer after she asked him through a back window to help her move something heavy, but pulled a gun on him as he followed her toward the bedroom.
The victim told police that she has had little contact with Olivares and did not even know his name before investigators told her what it was. She said her truck died Thursday and she asked him and his friend to use jumper cables to get it started, according to the affidavit. Olivares allegedly told her while getting the truck started that his girlfriend thought he was cheating because he was behind the victim’s trailer listening to her have sex.
The next morning, after her boyfriend had left to go out to breakfast, the victim told police she awoke to find her neighbor in bed with her. She forced Olivares out of the trailer at gunpoint and threw his shoes at him as he cried and apologized, according to the affidavit.
Olivares has several convictions, including one for disorderly conduct in August, but none for a sex crime, 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.
If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
