An Atlantic City man is charged with aggravated sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child over the course of several years, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner said.
Santos Blanco, 41, was arrested Tuesday, following a month-long investigation by detectives from the Pleasantville and Atlantic City police departments.
He is charged with two counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault, two counts of second-degree endangering the welfare of a child and one count of third-degree endangering.
The incidents occurred at Blanco’s residence and other locations.
An investigation is continuing into possibly other potential victims, Tyner said.
Judge Patricia Wild granted the state’s motion Thursday to detain Blanco pending trial.
