FORT LEE, NJ - First Assistant Bergen County Prosecutor William J. Galda announced Sunday the arrest of Brian Parolin, 28, of Linwood Avenue in Fort Lee, New Jersey, on sexual assault, assault, and weapons charges.

The arrest came about as a result of an investigation conducted by members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Sex Crimes and Child Abuse Squad, under the direction of Chief Joseph Macellaro, and the Fort Lee Police Department, under the direction of Chief Thomas O. Ripoli.

A 35-year-old woman reported to detectives from the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office and the Fort Lee Police Department that Parolin sexually and physically assaulted her and threatened her with a knife yesterday, saying that he would kill her and her family if she contacted police, according to authorities.

Parolin, who is single and unemployed, has been charged with:

  • one count of aggravated sexual assault (first degree);
  • one count of sexual assault (second degree);
  • one count of terroristic threat (third degree);
  • one count of unlawful possession of a weapon (third degree);
  • one count of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose (fourth degree);
  • one count of aggravated assault (fourth degree); and
  • one count of criminal mischief (third degree).

Bail has been set by Judge Lois Lipton at $100,000.00 with no 10% cash option. Parolin was remanded to the Bergen County Jail in lieu of bail.
