A 39-year-old man with a long criminal history is being held on more than $1 million bail, accused of sexually assaulting his ex-girlfriend during a home invasion in Enfield

The woman told police that Roger Jackson broke into her home off Middle Road and woke her up at about 5 a.m. on Friday, sexually assaulted her, choked her and threatened to kill her.

She said she fled and called police after Jackson fell asleep. Jackson surrendered after a standoff with a police SWAT team.

He has an extensive criminal record in Massachusetts including an aggravated rape conviction and dozens of arrests. He was arraigned at Enfield Superior Court on Monday on charges including first-degree sexual assault, kidnapping and strangulation.
