Two Stonington men accused of breaking into Waterville woman’s apartment, assaulting her

WATERVILLE, Maine — A pair of men from Hancock County were arrested Tuesday in Waterville after they drunkenly entered an apartment and assaulted the female tenant, according to police.

Jeremy Eaton, 35, and Michael Robbins, 36, are facing charges of criminal trespassing and assault, Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey said Thursday.

Rumsey said the woman was cleaning her apartment and had left her door open when Eaton and Robbins, both of whom were intoxicated, entered the apartment.

“She told them to leave and they refused,” said Rumsey. “At one point in time, both of them touched her, which constituted the crime of assault.”

Rumsey said the woman wasn’t sexually harassed, but that the men were “being extremely forward with her and remaining in the apartment when she didn’t want them there.”

When police arrived, Robbins tried to leave the scene, earning him an additional count of refusing to submit to arrest, Rumsey said.

Both men were transported to the Kennebec County Jail, where Robbins’ bail was set at $750 cash and Eaton’s at $500 cash.

Correction: An earlier version of this article misspelled the name of one of the men arrested. His name is Michael Robbins, not Micheal.
