A 52-year-old man has been arrested and charged with sexual assault.

On June 26, at about 7 p.m., the Nelson Police Department received a call to the bus stop at Ward and Baker Streets regarding an intoxicated man drinking and harassing a young girl in a sexual manner. The NPD attended the area and spoke to the young girl and the drunk male.  The man was arrested and charged with sexual assault and resisting arrest.

He was remanded and was scheduled to appear in court Monday (June 30).

This was one of more than 100 calls for service received by the NPD last week.

Other incidents included:

Nelson Police were called to a local motel on June 28 when a guest observed a male going through the saddlebag of a motorcycle belonging to another guest at the motel. The witness detained the male and stood by until police arrived.  A 20-year-old man, not from the Nelson area, was arrested for theft and possession of stolen property.  He was released on a promise to appear with a court date set for August 19. All property stolen was recovered and returned to the owner of the motorcycle.

Also on June 28, police were flagged down by a pedestrian who reported being shot at by an unknown male in a vehicle. The pedestrian believed the firearm to be a C02 powered BB gun.

A vehicle description was given and the vehicle and two men were located a short time later.  A C02 BB gun was recovered along with ammunition and C02 cartridges.  A 23-year-old Nelson resident was arrested for possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. He was also charged with mischief under $5,000 as the investigation led to locating a window shattered at a local business.

The investigation is ongoing and further charges may be added with regard to other damage reported.
