Cops: Burlington County Husband and Wife Arrested for Sexually Assaulting Teen
Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina says a husband and wife from Beverly have been charged with sexually assaulting a teenager in their home last month.
According to authorities, 33-year-old Luis Morales-Sarmiento, who is a volunteer firefighter in Beverly, and 22-year-old Katherine Morales-Sarmiento have been charged with second-degree sexual assault and third-degree endangering the welfare of a child.
Coffina says, "the investigation began after the teenager’s mother contacted police to report the assault. The investigation revealed that Luis Morales-Sarmiento, who is acquainted with the victim, invited him to his home and then took him to the couple’s bedroom, where the sexual contact occurred."
Officials say the two were taken into custody at the Prosecutor’s Office on Monday. They were released following an initial court appearance.
Coffina asks that anyone who may have been victimized by these two to call the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office's Major Crimes Unit at (609) 265-5035.
