the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office told NJ.com that 35-year-old Jesse Christiansen of Berganet has been charged with sexually assaulting a child and endangering a minor.
The 11-year-old girl reportedly encountered the suspect last Wednesday, and he allegedly offered her a wine cooler and candy and asked her in exchange to lift up her shirt and let him touch her.
The girl reportedly refused, and told her mother about the incident, who then contacted police, according to a new release obtained by App.com.
The prosector’s office addressed the incident in a Facebook post:
“Just after 9 pm on September 13, 2017, the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department Radio Room received a call of an attempted sexual assault involving an 11-year-old female.
‘The subsequent investigation by Barnegat Police Det. William Hetrick and Ocean County Prosecutor Special Victims Det. Stephanie Bayha alleges Christiansen offered the victim candy and a wine cooler if she would lift her shirt and allow him to touch her in an inappropriate manner.
‘The victim did not comply and reported the defendant’s actions to her mother.”
Christiansen also had an outstanding warrant for shoplifting. He reportedly remains in custody on multiple charges.
