YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A 63-year-old bus driver from Fairview was arrested by county and local authorities and charged with molesting a 12-year-old girl twice.
Roberto Trochez, who drives for a private North Bergen company, was being held on $350,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charge with two counts of aggravated sexual assault and one of child endangerment.
Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said Trochez, who is married, was arrested by members of his Special Victims Unit and Fairview police on Friday.
The girl, who is now 14, “told a friend what had occurred at the time of the first incident but did not disclose to an adult what had happened until recently telling her aunt, who then told her parents,” the prosecutor said this afternoon.
They, in turn, alerted Fairview police, who contacted his investigators, Molinelli said.
During an interview with them, she “confirmed the information she had provided to her aunt” about Trochez “touching her in an inappropriate manner on two occasions,” he said.
