On Friday, March 17, the Danbury Police Department assisted members of the Bergen County New Jersey Prosecutors Office in the arrest of Edison Bueno-Tenempaguay, age 28, on charges of luring and debauching the morals of a child, said Erin Henry of the Danbury Police Department.
Henry said in March, members of the Bergen County Prosecutors Office Cyber Crimes Unit received information that a child from Bergen County was being engaged in conversations on social media with Bueno-Tenempaguay, some of which were sexually explicit in nature.
On several occasions throughout the course of the conversations, Bueno-Tenempaguay attempted to arrange for an in-person meeting, describing sexual acts he planned on performing upon the child, Henry said.
The investigation revealed that Bueno-Tenempaguay controlled the online accounts being utilized to contact the child, Henry added.
During the online chats, Henry said Bueno-Tenempaguay instructed the child to send sexually explicit photos and shared sexually explicit digital files with the child.
Following his arrest, Bueno-Tenempaguay was remanded to the Bridgeport Correctional Center pending extradition to New Jersey.
This investigation is ongoing.
Henry said Bueno-Tenempaguay used the following social media accounts:
