NEWRY — A Bethel man was arrested and charged Tuesday with sexually assaulting a woman.

Spencer T. Glover, 29, of 17 Church St. faces one charge of Class B gross sexual assault. The assault is alleged to have happened Jan. 27 in Bethel.

Glover was arrested Tuesday night by Deputy Matthew Noyes of the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office. Noyes said after an investigation, two deputies approached Glover at Sunday River ski resort, where he works as a cook. Noyes said Glover drove his car to the Bethel substation of the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office and was arrested there.

Glover did not enter a plea Wednesday. His bail was set at $700 cash, down from his original bail of $6,000, with the option to instead make a contract with Maine Pretrial Services.

If bailed, Glover must avoid alcohol and drugs and is subject to searches and testing. He cannot contact the alleged victim or another woman named in the case. Noyes said the investigation is ongoing.

A Class B felony is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine. Glover’s arraignment is set for May 3.
