WILLIAMSBRUG -- A Williamsburg man was arrested after police say he attacked his neighbor Monday afternoon.

According to spokesman Major Greg Riley, 58-year-old David Paul Gallant knocked on his neighbor's apartment door in the 200 block of Merrimac Trail around 2 p.m.  When she answered the door, Gallant allegedly tried to sexually assault the woman.

Riley says the victim screamed, which got the attention of other people in the building and Gallant fled.   

Gallant was arrested less than an hour later.  He is charged with abduction, breaking and entering, assault and battery, and sexual battery. 

Gallant is being held at the Peninsula Regional Jail.
