The victim notified local police a week later. The Hackensack Police Department, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office, and NJ State Police then worked together on the subsequent investigation.

Police later arrested the suspect and charged him with several crimes, including aggravated sexual assault, armed robbery, and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

Beyond that, the suspect was also charged with possession of marijuana and heroin possession because police officers allegedly found him carrying illegal drugs at the time of his arrest.
