The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office Monday charged 34-year-old Brian Watkins, of Fremont, with three counts of unlawful sexual assault against a minor.

Fremont police arrested Watkins last week after a monthslong investigation.

Officials say they began investigating Watkins in July 2019, after receiving a report of alleged sexual misconduct involving a teenage girl.

It was not immediately known if Watkins has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.
