The jail's file on Chocoj also shows that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has filed a detainer. Chocoj is a citizen of Guatemala.

Fairview police made initial contact with the prosecutor's office on Nov. 9 of this year, from which an investigation resulted in Chocoj's arrest in Paramus on Monday.

Neither the victim's gender nor what their relationship was to Chocoj were disclosed by authorities.

Chocoj is charged with four counts of second-degree sexual assault and one count of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child.

He is lodged at the Bergen County Jail pending an initial court appearance.
