Manual Isaias Perez-Curruchich, 19, was arrested by Fairview police and members of Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli’s Special Victims Unit early this morning in connection with a Dec. 1 incident.
He is being held on $350,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with aggravated sexual assault on a minor and child endangerment. He’s due for a first appearance in Fairview Municipal Court tomorrow afternoon.
Fairview police went to Perez-Curruchich’s Walker Street apartment yesterday on an unrelated matter, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said .
While there, “it was brought to their attention by another family member in the household that [he] had touched [the victim] in the past,” the prosecutor said.
Molinelli said the officers detained Perez-Curruchich, a Guatemalan native who works in Jersey City. De tectives quickly arrived, took over the case and notified the prosecutor’s Special Victims Unit.
