Hackensack Man Faces Aggravated Sexual Assault Charges

Hackensack New Jersey Sexual Assault SuspectHackensack NJ police recently arrested a local man who allegedly committed a sexual assault of a teenage girl.

According to Bergen County officials, the 36-year-old suspect committed the sexual abuse against a “female minor” who was between the ages of 13 and 16.

Additionally, the suspect is accused of physically assaulting an adult woman.

Police first became aware of the alleged sexual assault when the adult victim contacted authorities and notified them of the attack against her. The woman also told police that she came across a video on the suspect’s cell phone showing him sexually assaulting a young girl she knew.

Hackensack New Jersey police began an investigation into the sex crime allegations. The Hackensack Police Department was assisted in the investigation by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit.

Once investigators had enough evidence, they placed the suspect under arrest.

The suspect was later charged with several crimes, including aggravated sexual assault, child endangerment, aggravated criminal sexual contact, and simple assault.

If the suspect is ultimately convicted on the most serious sex crime charges, he would face severe penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:14-2, anyone who commits an act of sexual penetration with a minor under 13 years of age can be charged with a first degree felony. A conviction for first degree aggravated sexual assault could result in a sentence of 10-20 years in NJ State Prison.

The suspect has been ordered to appear in Bergen County Superior Court in Hackensack so that he can be arraigned on the charges. After being placed under arrest and processed, he was being held at the Bergen County Jail in lieu of $500,000 bail. If he does manage to secure his release from police custody on bail, he will be prohibited from making any contact with the victims in the case.
