Portland police have arrested a man they say severely beat a woman in her apartment last month.

A 62-year-old woman told police on Jan. 19 that someone broke into her apartment at 723 Congress St. around 3:15 a.m. and beat her.

Police arrested 53-year-old Stephen Brichetto of Portland on Monday on charges of aggravated assault and burglary, according to a department spokesman Brad Nadeau. He would not say if Brichetto and the woman know each other and what the woman’s current condition is.

Police are asking anyone with information about the case to call 874-8575.
