An underage Moonachie teen was sexually assaulted by a Paterson man, said authorities who arrested him.
Nathan Santana, 22, remained held Thursday in the Bergen County Jail after a judge refused to release him during a first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack on Monday following his arrest six days earlier.
Santana has another hearing to petition for his release scheduled for this coming Tuesday, Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo said.
He’s charged with sexual assault of a child under 16 and child endangerment.
Calo’s Special Victims Unit and Moonachie police began investigating following a report last October, the prosecutor said.
