LAKEWOOD, NJ (The Asbury Park Press) – A 50-year-old township man was arrested Thursday on charges that he sexually assaulted two people, including a 9-year-old girl, authorities said.
Cirino “Flocka” Dominguez-Salazar is facing charges of aggravated sexual assault, three counts of sexual assault, attempted aggravated sexual assault, attempted sexual assault, attempted criminal sexual contact and endangering the welfare of a child, according to a news release from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.
Police began investigating Dominguez-Salazar in mid-October after a victim told police that she had been sexually assaulted by him multiple times, beginning when she was 9 years old, according to the Prosecutor’s Office.
Detectives later identified a second person who also allegedly had been victimized by Dominguez-Salazar around the same time as the other victim, authorities said. The release did not say when the sexual assaults allegedly occurred.
Dominguez-Salazar was held Saturday in the Ocean County Jail to await a detention hearing where a judge will decide whether he will stay in jail pending prosecution of the case.
Lakewood police Detective Eric Cicerello and Detective Alex Dasti of the Prosecutor’s Office’s Special Victims Unit led the investigation. The State Police and Ocean County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the inquiry.
Authorities ask anyone with information relevant to the investigation to contact Cicerello at 732-363-0200 or Dasti at 732-929-2027, ext. 3458.
