A 19-year-old man from Egg Harbor City was arrested Mar. 5, in Somers Point, and charged with multiple accounts of sexual assault on a 14-year-old victim.

Javis Morales met the juvenile online and communicated with him by text messages to set up meetings for the purpose of having sex, police said.

The police department received a call at about 11:30 p.m. that night about a suspicious activity in the golf course section of the town, said police Chief Michael Boyd.

Officers found Morales in the vehicle, and when he was questioned, Morales gave suspicious answers, Boyd said.

Morales was charged with aggravated sexual assault and enticing a child. He is in Atlantic County Jail with bail set at $150,000 cash.

The investigation is ongoing, Boyd said, and additional charges are pending.
