Man who served time for murder charged in assault

WATERVILLE (AP) — A 38-year-old Waterville man who spent time in prison for the 1989 murder of his mother has been charged with attempted gross sexual assault.

Waterville police Sgt. Daniel Goss said Scott L. Thompson allegedly entered Maurices women's clothing store at about 8 p.m. Friday and burst into one of the changing rooms.

Goss told the Morning Sentinel that Thompson shoved a woman against the wall, but she resisted and called for help. Thompson fled and was arrested a short distance away.

Thompson was convicted of murder in 1991 for the stabbing death of his mother, Edith Thompson, in her East Winthrop mobile home. He was arrested last summer for breaking into an adult novelty store soon after being released from prison on the murder conviction.
