YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A Nicaraguan grandfather sexually abused a trio of children over the course of several years — beginning when two of them were five years old — a 19-count indictment returned in Hackensack charges.

Authorities began investigating 74-year-old Felix Roberto Prado last November after the male victim — then 24 — went to city police, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said at the time.

They found that Prado “abused two other females in the past,” the prosecutor said. “[They] are now also in their mid-twenties.”

The indictment accuses the Nicaraguan national of multiple acts on the boy from the ages of 14 to 18 between September 2003 and January 2005.

These included sexual penetration, fellatio and sodomy, as well as having the victim masturbate him and give him oral sex, the indictment returned in Hackensack says.

It also accuses him of sexually assaulting the girls between June 1995 and May 1999.

Prado “placed his finger between the vaginal labia” of each of the girls, beginning when they were five, the indictment says. He also forced one of them to masturbate him, it says.

The 5-foot-4, 155-pound Prado remained being held on $250,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail.
