FAIRFIELD - A registered sex offender from Seymour is facing charges after police say he sexually assaulted a woman in her Fairfield home.

Police say Raymond Charles Nilson, 48, works as a piano tuner and assaulted the woman when he was hired to come to her Park Avenue home.

Police say Nilson inappropriately grabbed and fondled the woman.

Officers say she was able to talk her way out of the situation, but did fear for her life.

Nilson previously sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl from Bethany.

Police say Nilson is free on a $175,000 bond and will go before a judge on March 24.
