According to police, in late December and early January police received reports of two separate incidents which occurred on the walking trails at the park. In both incidents, lone females were walking on the trails when they were approached by an unknown man. In both incidents, the man “grabbed the woman’s private area before ultimately leaving the area on foot,” police said.

Calel-Juarez was charged in regard to both of those incidents. He was turned over to Hunterdon Sheriff’s officers and then transferred to Somerset County Jail.

The investigation was conducted by the township’s Detective Bureau with the assistance of Patrolman Ismael Mendez.
