YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A 38-year-old man who briefly lived in Saddle Brook was arrested over the weekend and charged with sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl.
Daniel Sean O’Brien was being held on $300,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault and child endangerment in connection with a Jan. 31 incident, records show.
The girl “disclosed what had occurred to a coordinator from the NJ Child Abuse Prevention Program (NJCAP) who was speaking at her school,” Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said this afternoon while confirming the arrest.
The coordinator contacted the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCP&P) who then notified the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit, he said.
During an interview with a unit investigator at Molinelli’s Paramus office, the girl “provided specific details regarding what had occurred,” after which O’Brien was arrested, the prosecutor said.
O’Brien, who is single and unemployed, is due for a first court appearance tomorrow.
