The victim later spoke with a caseworker with the NJ Division of Child Protection and Permanency. The victim told authorities that the suspect abused her on “multiple occasions.”
The Mahwah Police Department and the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit then worked together on an investigation.
