Wall Man Charged With Rape Of 13-Year-Old
Grand jury hands up a 4-count indictment Monday
A Wall man has been charged with the rape of a 13-year-old child, according to court documents.
A grand jury on Monday handed up a four-count indictment against Jahvon W. Stroud, of New Bedford Road, for the alleged sexual assault of the minor on May 18, according to the indictment.
The incident occurred in Wall. The indictment does not say where.
Stroud, 19, is charged with second degree sexual assault and second degree sexual assault with a minor between the ages of 13 and 16, according to the indictment.
He also is charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child — one involving the 13-year-old and another involving an 8-year-old child on the same day. The 8-year-old was in Stroud's care, according to the indictments.
The second count of child endangerment says that Stroud engaged in sexual conduct that could impair the 8-year-old child, but does not charge him with sexual assault.
It was not immediately clear if the children were related, or if they were related to Stroud.
Stroud was not listed as an inmate in the Monmouth County jail Monday, according to jail records.
Stroud made bail in the amount of $85,000, Acting Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni said. Gramiccioni declined further comment.
