Jonathan E. Melendez, 29, of 332 Winslow St., Apt. 1, was charged by Watertown police Wednesday with first-degree criminal sexual act, third-degree assault and second-degree unlawful imprisonment.
He is accused of holding a 21-year-old woman down on a mattress and forcing her into oral sex. He also is accused of striking the victim on her head and face, causing severe pain and a one-inch laceration under her left eye that required stitches.
Police said he also struck the victim several times in her abdomen with the knowledge that she was pregnant, causing severe pain.
He was arraigned Thursday and is being held without bail at the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building.
