Kenny Arceda, 23, of Jersey City, has been charged with one count of second-degree sexual assault, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said in a statement.

The crime occurred in the early morning hours of August 4th in the vestibule area of a building on the 100th block of Washington Street. The 20-year-old victim was an acquaintance of Arceda, whom she had previously met at a bar in Hoboken.

He was arrested in West Orange and transported to the Hudson County Correctional Facility pending his first court appearance. The State has filed a detention motion, which is tentatively scheduled to be heard on Thursday, November 10th.

Suarez credited the Special Victims Unit with the investigation and arrest, with assistance from the Hoboken Police Department.
