A Bergenfield teen claimed that she was groped on a local street by a man whom police arrested a short time later.

The girl, 16, told them she was walking on Wilbur Road when she was approached near Quincy Lane by a man who grabbed her breasts over her top and fled around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Detective Lt. William Duran said.

Uniformed officers and detectives immediately flooded the area, Duran said.

Detective Rick Tauber found and arrested Kristofer Rodriguez, 23, near the corner of Melrose and Anderson avenues roughly a half-hour later, he said.

Rodriguez was charged with criminal sexual contact and child endangerment after the alleged victim positively identified him.

He was then released pending court action under New Jersey’s 2017 bail reform law.
