A 51-year-old waiter from Elmwood Park was arrested this morning and accused of molesting an 8-year-old girl. Hugo Caro-Cardona, who works at Lunello’s Restaurant in Cedar Grove, is being held on $200,000 in the Bergen County Jail pending a court hearing tomorrow.
He’s officially charged with sexual assault and endangerment, said Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli.
Elmwood Park police got the call yesterday and immediately notified the prosecutor’s Sex Crimes and Child Abuse Unit, Molinelli said. Together, they scooped up Caro-Cardona, who is single, at his Lee Street home.
