Morristown, NJ teen accused of recording repeated sexual assaults


MORRISTOWN – A 19-year-old man from Morristown has been charged with sexually assaulting at least four teenage victims, aged 14 to 18, and filming the assaults on his cell phone.

Ruben Gonzalez committed the repeated sexual assaults in Morris Township and Morristown, between December 2020 and last November, according to Morris County District Attorney Robert Carroll.

After his arrest, investigators recovered several videos showing the sexual exploitation of children on Gonzalez’s phone, Carroll said.

Gonzalez was charged with aggravated first-degree sexual assault on a physically defenseless victim, eight counts of second-degree sexual assault, and seven counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual contact.

He also faces three counts of endangering the well-being of a child and one count of possession of child pornography – all third degree charges.

Gonzalez was being held in Morris County Jail Thursday, following a detention hearing.

Anyone with information relating to this case or any related incident can call Detective Melissa Enslen of the Morris County District Attorney’s Office at 973-285-6307 or Detective Scott Weaver of the Morristown Police Department 973-292-6656 .
