WATERVILLE — A Waterville man was arrested Wednesday and accused of repeatedly assaulting a woman over a period of several months.

Raymond R. Killam, 42, of Summer Street, was taken into custody at the Waterville police station on Colby Street shortly before 3 p.m. Wednesday and charged with aggravated assault and domestic violence gross sexual assault.

Waterville police Chief Joseph Massey said Thursday that a woman came into the police station early Wednesday afternoon and alleged that Killam had sexually assaulted her. In an interview with Detective Jason Longley, she alleged the abuse had been going on for four or five months, Massey said.

Police had Killam come to the station for an interview, and he was cooperative in the interview, Massey said. Killam was charged and booked after the interview and taken to the Kennebec County jail, where he is being held without bail.

According to Massey, Killam was convicted in 2005 in Androscoggin County Superior Court of unlawful sexual contact and given a suspended four-year prison sentence.

According to court records, Killam was sentenced to a year in jail with all but two days suspended and two years of probation for a domestic violence assault in Clinton in July 2011 and was fined $200 for violating a protection order in Clinton later that year.

Aggravated assault is a class B crime that carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine. Gross sexual assault is a class A crime that carries a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a $50,000 fine.
