The victim was lying on his bed. The suspect approached and began touching his groin, police said.
The suspect prevented him from getting out of bed until a roommate stepped in. The roommate's arms were scratched and she was pushed into a wall by the suspect, police said.
The suspect then stole a pack of cigarettes and left.
A 27-year-old Smiths Falls woman is facing charges of breaking and entering, sexual assault, forcible confinement, assault and theft under $5,000.
