Romaric Guiebre of Brooklyn was charged with assault; burglary; grand larceny; criminal sexual act; unlawful imprisonment; menacing and criminal possession of a weapon, police announced Wednesday.

Guiebre allegedly entered the 29-year-old victim's Bushwick apartment on July 25 after finding a hidden key and unlocking the door.
