    A man registered as a sex offender in Vermont and Massachusetts has been accused of sexually assaulting a neighbor who has a mental disability.

    Police charged 64-year-old Roy Patten of Hancock, Vermont, with aggravated sexual assault on Friday.

    Police said they got a call from a woman in New Hampshire who said she had just picked up her 48-year-old sister from Hancock. The sister said she was being sexually assaulted by a neighbor.

    Police arrested Patten after an investigation. It wasn't immediately known if he had a lawyer.

    Police said in New Hampshire, Patten was convicted in 1984 for attempted felonious sexual assault and in 1998 for Indecent exposure and lewdness.

    He's been jailed on $25,000 bail.
