Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez has released the following information:
On Monday, July 26, 2021, members of the Arlington, Massachusetts Police Department arrested Wolide Yessuf, age 18, of Cambridge, Massachusetts, who was wanted on Hudson County charges that he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl in North Bergen.
Yessuf has been charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:14-2a(7), a crime of the first degree; Sexual Assault in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:14-2c(1), a crime of the second degree; and Endangering the Welfare of a Child in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:24-4a(1), a crime of the third degree.
