SADDLE BROOK, N.J. – A former Saddle Brook fire chief who repairs and maintains equipment in and around large buildings and complexes was charged with sexually assaulting and threatening a woman over the weekend.

Robert Meyers, 40, was released on $25,000 bail pending a Sept. 2 arraignment in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack on charges of sexual assault and making terroristic threats.

He also was ordered to surrender any firearms, Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said Monday.

The woman “reported to Hackensack University Medical Center that she was the victim of a sexual assault earlier in the day [Saturday] at a residence in Saddle Brook,” Grewal said.

HUMC personnel contacted detectives from Grewal’s Special Victims Unit, who launched a joint investigation with Saddle Brook police, the prosecutor said.

Meyers, who is married and come from a family of firefighters, was given a Sept. 2 arraignment date in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.
