A 22-year-old Cliffside Park laborer sexually assaulted a Palisades Park minor, authorities charged.

Alejandro Hildalgo was taken into custody on Wednesday and sent to the Bergen County Jail, where he remained pending a first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack, Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella said.

Palisades Park police received information about Hidalgo last Saturday that led to a joint investigation with Musella's Special Victims Unit, authorities said Thursday.

He is charged with sexual assault of a minor under 16 years old and child endangerment through sexual conduct that would "impair or debauch the morals" of the alleged victim.

Hidalgo, a Salvadoran national, has separate prior arrests for simple assault in Palisades Park and Ridgefield in 2017, records show.
