NJ Transit driver accused of molesting young girl
A New Jersey Transit driver is accused of molesting a 13-year-old passenger.
New Jersey Transit and the Port Authority have identified the driver as Sergio Arrendondo, who is an 18-year veteran. Arrendondo was arrested last week and charged with third-degree sex abuse, forced touching and endangering the welfare of a child.
An NJ Transit spokeswoman says this case is still an "ongoing internal and external investigation," and all employees undergo background checks. Arrendondo has been placed on unpaid leave.
The alleged abuse took place in March.
