FAIR LAWN, NJ - A Fair Lawn man was arrested yesterday afternoon on charges of aggravated sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

Randolph Hoffman, 45, of Fair Lawn, New Jersey, was arrested at approximately 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 27, and charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault (a first degree crime), and one count of endangering the welfare of a child (a second degree crime).

Earlier in the day, a five-year-old girl reportedly disclosed to detectives that Hoffman - a married man with a reported place of employment in Paramus - had her perform oral sex on him, after she had observed him watching a pornographic movie. The incident allegedly occurred approximately one year ago in May of 2008, at a residence in Bogota, New Jersey.

The arrest came about as a result of an investigation conducted by members of the Bogota Police Department, under the direction of Chief Frank Gurnari, and the Little Ferry Police Department, under the direction of Chief Ralph Verdi, with the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office Sex Crimes and Child Abuse Squad.

Judge Harry Carroll set bail for Randolph Hoffman at $300,000.00, with no 10% cash option. As a condition of bail, Hoffman is to have no contact with the victim and must surrender his passport.

In lieu of bail, Randolph Hoffman was remanded to the Bergen County Jail.

Hoffman is scheduled to be arraigned before Judge Luis Martinez next Tuesday, June 2, at 3:00 p.m.
