A 23-year-old Northvale electrician created a bogus identity to have online sex chats with two underage girls whom he convinced to send him nearly two dozen “nude or sexually explicit” photos of themselves, authorities charged.

Ronald S. “Ronnie” Rovito Jr. used the screen names “buyingnudes2019,” “whoop_w,” or “ncruzan,” Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella said Thursday.

Detectives with Musella’s Cyber Crimes Unit raided Rovito’s parents’ Paris Avenue home on Wednesday and discovered that he’d “used the Internet to view, download, or possess approximately 390 digital files depicting nude and/or sexually explicit prepubescent and pubescent children,” the prosecutor said.

Rovito also “used numerous social media and file-sharing applications to share files depicting nude or sexually explicit prepubescent and pubescent children and engage in online conversations using a fictitious identity,” Musella said.

“During at least two such online conversations, [Rovito] engaged in sexually explicit dialogue with two underage girls and collected approximately 20 nude or sexually explicit images from them,” the prosecutor added.

Rovito remained held Thursday in the Bergen County Jail while awaiting a first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography and child endangerment.

Musella asked that any parent or guardian who determines that their child has communicated with Rovito’s online screen names immediately contact his office’s Cyber Crimes Unit: (201) 226-5518 .
