ONLY ON THE PILOT: An upstate New York accused of having a sexual relationship with a Paramus girl beginning when she was 14 faces additional counts of threatening to strangle her and forcing her to insert a brush into her vagina.
Chase Bunt, 24, originally was charged with second-degree sexual assault for allegedly forcing the girl into oral sex.
A grand jury in Hackensack last week added five counts involving what it said were forced acts.
Bunt lives in Ellenville in the Catskills, about 35 miles west of Poughkeepsie and less than 20 miles north of Middletown.
State Police there arrested him on an arrest warrant out of Bergen County last July. They also charged him with being a fugitive from justice.
He was extradited to New Jersey soon after.
The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office and New York State Police obtained a search warrant for Bunt’s home but didn’t say what they found.
Bunt posted $150,000 bail and was released from the Bergen County Jail about three weeks later.
No date was given for an arraignment on the new charges.
