A 37-year-old New Jersey man has been charged with sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy, authorities said.
Tommaso Piccirillo, of Fairview, was arrested Tuesday after the teenager's mother learned about the alleged assault and called police.
The alleged abuse occurred in the teenager's hometown of Edgewater. The boy knew his alleged assailant, police said.
Piccirillo was charged with second-degree sexual assault and third-degree endangering the welfare of a child.
He was remanded to the Bergen County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
Information on an attorney wasn't immediately available.
