A 71-year-old Paterson man sexually abused two children in Haledon over a period of nearly 10 years, an indictment returned by a grand jury alleges.

Muniru Owe, formerly of Haledon, remains free pending a July 13 arraignment on the indictment in Superior Court in Paterson, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes said Tuesday.

The offenses “took place at a residence in Haledon, New Jersey from June 2000 through June 2009,” Valdes said.

Owe is charged with sexual assault, attempted sexual assault, criminal sexual contact and child endangerment.
