Police Announce Reward in NJ Sex Assault Case

Cliffside Park Police

Police in New Jersey released a sketch of a sex assault suspect Thursday, announcing a $2,500 reward in connection with the case.

The suspect is still wanted in connection with the Feb. 22 early-morning break-in at a Cliffside Park home in Bergen County, when he allegedly assaulted two girls, according to prosecutors.

The homeowner interrupted the intruder and chased him out of the house, on the 400-block of Washington Avenue. A passing driver who heard the homeowner scream followed the suspect as he ran down the street, but lost him when he ran into a backyard on the corner of Grove and Lincoln avenues.

Cliffside Park Police said Thursday a $2,500 reward in being offered by the Federal Law Enforcement Foundation to capture the suspect, whose police sketch is attached.

Police said he may have been wearing some sort of a string necklace with an attached piece of circular black cloth. Embedded in the cloth were the letters "serv_n," with the second-to-last letter missing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cliffside Park Police at 201-945-3600 or the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office at 201-226-5620. Tips may also be e-mailed to tips@bcpo.net or texted to 551-265-3288.
