Police officers recently arrested and charged two men who allegedly sexually assaulted a young girl over a seven-year period in Mount Olive, New Jersey.
According to Morris County prosecutors, the suspects started to sexually abuse the underage victim in 2004. Law enforcement first became aware of the alleged abuse when the victim came forward after she turned 21.
Mount Olive police, the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office, and NJ State Police opened an investigation into the allegations. As part of the investigation, authorities interviewed the suspects and gave one of them a polygraph test. At the end of the polygraph test, arrest warrants were issued for both men.
The suspect who took the polygraph test was immediately placed under arrest. The other suspect was arrested a short time later at his residence in Budd Lake, New Jersey.
Both suspects reside in Budd Lake NJ and have the same last name. They have been charged with numerous sex crimes, including aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, and endangering the welfare of a child.
After being arrested and processed, both men were remanded to the Morris County Correctional Facility in Morristown, New Jersey.
