A Fort Drum man faces burglary and sex charges after he allegedly broke into an East Hills Apartment and forced a 25-year-old female to have sex with him.
Arrested on Wednesday was David A. Brooks, 31, Fort Drum, on charges of second-degree burglary, first-degree sexual abuse and second-degree unlawful imprisonment.
City police said he broke into the apartment Aug. 6 and forced the woman to have sex. The victim and Brooks had a mutual female friend, police said.

He was arraigned in Watertown City Court on Wednesday morning and remanded to the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building on $2,500 bail.
