FLEMINGTON, N.J. -

Twenty-one-year-old Henry Bonerjez-Juarez of Flemington was arrested and charged with harassment and disorderly conduct for the alleged offensive touching of a 33-year-old Flemington woman.

At 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, the victim was walking her dog near the intersection of Main and Capner streets when  approached by a man who inquired about petting and taking a picture of the dog.

Bonerjez-Juarez allegedly touched the woman in an offensive way, according to law enforcement officials.

Crisologo intervened and, assisted by Prosecutor's Detective Edmund DeFilippis, detained Bonerjez-Juarez. Flemington police responded, and Bonerjez-Juarez was taken into custody.

He was charged, then released with a pending court appearance on August 8.
