HACKENSACK, N.J. – A Hackensack laborer was charged with sexually abusing two children, authorities charged.
Marcos Delacruz, a 50-year-old Salvadoran national, was charged with aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault and child endangerment.
Hackensack police received the first report on Tuesday that Delacruz “had inappropriate sexual contact with a juvenile in Hackensack from 2012 to 2014 when the child was between the ages of 6 and 8 years old,” Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said.
A day later, they received another report – this time that “had inappropriate sexual contact with another juvenile in Hackensack from 2011 to 2017 when that child was between the ages of 5 and 11 years old,” Grewal said.
A joint investigation by the prosecutor’s Special Victims Unit and city police followed, leading to Delacruz’s arrest.
He remained held in the Bergen County Jail following a detention hearing Thursday.
