After Morristown, NJ sexual assault trail, 2 young men arrested
MORRISTOWN – Two young men have been arrested after the reported sexual assault and attempted robbery along a Morris County trail on Tuesday.
Morris County District Attorney Robert Carroll announced that 18-year-old Lizandro Osorio-Mejia has been charged with two counts of aggravated sexual assault and aggravated criminal sexual contact, while a 17-year-old man was charged with robbery and theft.
A woman reported being attacked in Morristown on the Traction Line Recreation Trail on Tuesday afternoon.
The pair – strangers to the victim, police say – were arrested on Thursday, hours after police shared surveillance footage with the public, asking for potential advice.
“Thank you to all of our law enforcement partners at the state, county and local levels, without whom such a thorough and prompt investigation and arrests would not have been possible,” Carroll said.
“I also thank the public and our local/regional media for their vigilance and assistance in spreading the word. It is this due diligence and communication that allows law enforcement to most effectively protect the public,” he continued.
