Paramus NJ, A 53-year-old New Jersey man has been arrested on a sex-crime charge after he allegedly groped a young woman’s buttocks as she was shopping with her mother in a Marshalls department store in Paramus over the weekend.
According to the Paramus police the 19-year-old woman and her mom were in the store late afternoon Saturday when Edward Evans, of Bergenfield, allegedly grabbed the young woman as she was checking out shoes. The victim then told her mother, who reportedly chased the suspect out of the store while recording him on her phone.
The Paramus Police used the mother’s video to identify Evans as the suspect. He was arrested on Wednesday on a single charge of criminal sexual contact and remanded pending his first judicial hearing.
