Officer Wilfredo Guzman, 40, of Rockaway Township, is being held in the Morris County jail, according to a joint statement from Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp and Rockaway Township Police Chief Martin McParland Jr.

The two second-degree sexual assault charges against Guzman stem from his alleged involvement with two teenage girls in 2014 and 2015. One girl was between the ages of 16 and 17 and the other was 15, authorities said.

Guzman allegedly provided both girls with alcohol and prescription medication and “engaged in acts of sexual penetration,” Knapp and McParland said.

In addition to sexual assault, Guzman is charged with two counts of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child.

Guzman has been a police officer in Rockaway Township since 2003, prosecutor’s office spokesman Fred Snowflack said.

He is paid $111,980 annually, according to public records.
