WATERTOWN — A man who police said sexually assaulted a disabled woman at an apartment building where he does maintenance work was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Superior Court in Waterbury.

Carlos Deosa, 54, of Baldwin Street in Waterbury was arrested Friday with help from Waterbury police after he was found hiding in the basement area of his home, police said. He was charged with first-degree sexual assault, first-degree unlawful restraint and third-degree assault on a disabled person.

Deosa has been in custody on $500,000 bail and is being held on an immigration detainer issued by the Department of Homeland Security; he was found to have multiple identities and had been deported from the United States three times, police said.

Police began investigating the case on Feb. 8, when a woman came to police saying she had been sexually assaulted two days earlier.

She knew the man who assaulted her, she told police, because he worked “odd jobs” at her building.
