A teen in New Jersey was charged for criminal sexual contact as a result of an incident that took place on Dec. 19. The teen was charged for the juvenile crime after NJ.com posted photos of him on their site on Jan. 20. Although a detective working on the case would not offer details about the teen's charge, he did say that publishing surveillance footage aided in the investigation.
According to police, the incident in question took place outside of a ShopRite store. While a 19-year-old woman from Jersey City was walking, the accused teen allegedly approached her and grabbed her buttocks. When the woman screamed, the accused teen reportedly fled the area. On Jan. 20, police publicized surveillance footage that was recorded near the scene and asked for witnesses to come forward with information.
