WATERTOWN, S.D.–A Connecticut man is jailed in Watertown on sex crime charges following his recent arrest.

Police were called to the 3800 block of 9th Avenue Southeast on the morning of December 26th on a report of an attempted sexual assault.

The suspect fled the scene before officers got there, but about four hours later, he was spotted and arrested during a traffic stop in the 800-block of Third Street Southwest in Watertown.

The suspect, 22 year-old Davon Brown (pictured) of New Haven, Connecticut, is charged with Third Degree Attempted Rape, False Imprisonment, Hiring for Sexual Activity, Indecent Exposure and Simple Assault. His bond was set at $10,000 cash.

Police say Brown is also alleged to have solicited a minor for sex in the 1200 block of 29th Street Southeast on December 26th, before he was arrested. His bond in that incident was set at $5,000 cash.

He’s being held in the Codington County Detention Center.
