Man, 36, allegedly sexually assaults boy


Police arrested a 36-year-old man in Koblerville Monday night for allegedly sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy and beating him up inside a car.

Jorlard Osilek Borja was arrested for sexual assault in the second degree, assault and battery, and disturbing the peace.

Police said that, according to the father, his son was crying and shaking because of the incident.

A $50,000 cash bail was imposed on Borja yesterday; preliminary hearing will be on Sept. 21 at 1:30pm.

A police officer met with the boy’s father, who had called the police, last Saturday at 6:07pm

In an interview with police, a witness stated that he and the 15-year-old boy were on a vehicle with Borja after a family picnic to go home.

While heading along Beach Road, Borja allegedly reached over and touched the boy, who was in the front passenger seat. The boy pushed Borja’s hand away several times, repeatedly telling him to stop.

The defendant then parked next to a laundry shop and allegedly kept touching the boy, who then performed a headlock on Borja. When the boy let him go, Borja allegedly punched him on the shoulder, head, and chest.

The witness said the boy got out of the car, walked home, and called his father on the phone and told him about what happened.
