Following an investigation by the Belfast Police Department and the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office, a 52-year-old Stockton Springs man has been charged with gross sexual assault.

Steven Watson was arrested by police on Jan. 1.

The investigation stems from an incident on Nov. 17, involving an 18-year-old female and occurred in Belfast, according to Belfast Police Chief Jeff Trafton. Trafton said Watson lived in Belfast at the time of the alleged incident.

The man is also under investigation for other similar incidents, the chief said.
