Flemington man arrested for alleged sexual assault on child

Cruz, SelvinHunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III, Chief of Detectives John J. Kuczynski, and Flemington Borough Police Chief George Becker announced that a joint investigation has led to the arrest of Selvin G. Cruz, 27, of Flemington, New Jersey.

The investigation revealed that the defendant engaged in sexual penetration with a child less than 16 years old, but older than 13 years, on at least 10 occasions. The defendant was charged with sexual assault, a second degree crime, and endangering the welfare of a child, a third degree crime.

Judge Angela Borkowski set bail on the defendant at $100,000. He was subsequently lodged in the Hunterdon County Jail, awaiting a first court appearance. This investigation is ongoing, and anyone with additional information is asked to contact the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit at (908) 788-1129.

According to Prosecutor Kearns, “Crimes involving children are a serious offense, and if found guilty, the defendant can be sentenced to five to 10 years in prison for the second degree charge.”

( The filing of a criminal complaint is merely a step in the criminal justice process. Information is provided by law enforcement officials, and is assumed accurate. All suspects and arrested persons are presumed not guilty unless proven guilty in a Court of Law or until such rights are waived by the accused.)
