HACKENSACK, N.J. — Weeks after a city man was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child late last month following a police investigation, which found he had engaged in lascivious conservations with a child online, he is now facing charges of sexual assault.

A new investigation by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office and the Englewood Police Departments concluded on May 12 that Juan Arnoldo Tomas, a 28-year-old warehouse worker from Hackensack, engaged in intercourse with the minor, who is under the age of 16, “multiple times” in Hackensack and Englewood.

The Englewood Police Department first received information on April 23 that Tomas had engaged in a "sexually explicit conversation" with the juvenile online. The Police Department then contacted the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office Special Victims Unit, after which Tomas was arrested and charged with one count of endangering the welfare of a child and one count of criminal sexual contact. Tomas was released from jail from a detention hearing in Hackensack. 

Following the authorities' latest investigation, Tomas was arrested again on May 14 and is facing two counts of sexual assault, a second-degree crime, and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, a third-degree crime. He was remanded to the Bergen County Jail awaiting a court appearance.
