Police: Man photographs, reports teen sex assault
HIGHTSTOWN, N.J. - August 28, 2012 (WPVI) -- Authorities say a good Samaritan in New Jersey used his cellphone camera to photograph a 43-year-old man sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy and then called 911.
Hightstown police tell The Times of Trenton (http://bit.ly/TpeUKb) the Samaritan was attending a church concert Saturday night when he saw Thomas Massaro of Hightstown with the boy. The Samaritan then took the photos so police would have proof of what happened.
Officers soon arrived on scene and charged Massaro with sexual assault of a minor, child endangerment and prostitution involving a minor. He was jailed on $50,000 bail, and it's not known if he has retained a lawyer.
Police say Massaro and the teen were previously acquainted before Saturday's incident.
