A Newton man was arrested in connection to an assault of a woman that took place on the path along the Charles River in Watertown.

Sandeep Khandke, 69, of Newton, was arraigned on Friday in Waltham District Court on a charge of indecent assault and battery on a person over 14, according to the Massachusetts State Police.

The State Police received a report of an assault in Watertown on the Charles River Greenway, which is State property. Troopers from the Boston State Police Barracks responded.

“The victim reported that a man with a cane had sat down next to her and while the two were talking, the man touched the victim’s leg and chest,” the State Police press release said. “Troopers interviewing the victim received word that Watertown PD officers had a suspect detained and spoke with him about the interaction. The victim was uninjured and expressed a want to not be involved any further.”

The case was sent to H Troop Detectives, according to the release, who applied for an arrest warrant through the Waltham District Court. The warrant was issued, and Khandke was arrested on March 7.
