Molinelli has announced the arrest of an 18-year-old male Waldwick High School student in connection with the assault of an 11-year-old borough female. The male has been charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault and one count of endangering the welfare of a child. The arrest came about as a result of an investigation conducted by members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office’s Sex Crimes and Child Abuse Squad under the direction of Chief Joseph Macellaro, and the Waldwick Police Department under the direction of Chief Mark Messner. This month, the 11-year-old female disclosed to detectives from the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office and the Waldwick Police Department that the 18-year-old had sexually assaulted her by forcing her to engage in sexual intercourse at a residence in Waldwick. The arrest was made the same day. The Honorable Harry G. Carroll, J.S.C., set bail at $300,000 with no 10 percent cash option. The male is also barred from having any contact with the victim and must surrender his passport as a condition of bail. Prosecutor Molinelli states that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. He thanked the Waldwick Police Department for their assistance and cooperation in the investigation. ��������� ������������� Hospital is scene of $7,800 theft A New Milford resident reported that two rings valued at a total of $7,800 had been stolen while she was in a room at Valley Hospital.
