      Fort Drum soldier accused of sexual abuse, burglary

      Fort Drum soldier David Brooks, 31, is accused of sexual abuse and burglary.

      A Fort Drum soldier is accused of breaking into a Watertown apartment, and forcing a woman to have sexual contact with him.

      David Brooks, 31, was arraigned Wednesday morning on burglary, sexual abuse and unlawful imprisonment charges.

      Watertown Police say about two weeks ago, Brooks somehow got into an apartment in the East Hills complex, on Ohio Street, and forced a 25-year-old woman into sexual contact.

      Brooks, who was stationed at Fort Drum, was sent to jail on $2,500 bail.
