BERGEN COUNTY (PIX11) — A 53-year-old man was arrested after allegedly engaging in sexual activity with a minor, officials said.

Olayo F. Matamoros-Anazco, a restaurant worker in Hackensack, is accused of sexually assaulting a female acquaintance between ages 6 and 11 on several occasions.

An investigation into the allegations began after the victim, who is now 13, disclosed to a school guidance counselor what happened. School officials then notified the Hackensack Police Department who contacted Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office.

The victim revealed specifics about her contact with Matamoros-Anazco, who was in turn arrested and charged with four counts of sexual assault and one count of endangering the welfare of a child.

He is being held in Bergen County Jail in lieu of $200,000 bail.
