A 20-year-old college student from Westwood was charged with sexually abusing a pre-teen.
Christian Pena-Ortiz was arrested following an investigation produced by a tip from the state Division of Child Protection and Permanency that he'd "engaged in sexual contact" with a minor under 13, Acting Bergen County Prosecutor said Tuesday.
He’s charged with two counts of aggravated sexual assault – one from last month and another from last June -- and one of child endangerment.
Pena-Ortiz remained held Tuesday in the Bergen County Jail pending a first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.
