A Philadelphia woman and a New Jersey man were arrested for the alleged sexual assaults of two underage girls, Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal announced.
Esperanza Mani-Cortez, 44, of South Philadelphia, and Alfredo Rosales, 51, from Englewood, N.J. were both charged with multiple counts of sexual assault and child endangerment.
Authorities received information that Rosales was having sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl. An investigation revealed that to be true, but also that Rosales was having sexual contact with another 12-year-old girl.
Investigators also discovered that Rosales agreed to pay Mani-Cortez in exchange for sex with the underage girls since 2010.
Both Rosales and Mani-Cortez were taken into police custody Saturday and sent to Bergen County Jail.
The two are scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
