WOODBURY — A 22-year-old Woodbury man was held without bail following his arrest by the Fugitive Investigations Unit of the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office for allegedly failing to appeal in court for a status conference hearing on two sex offense charges.
Michael A. Allen was arrested without incident Monday at a Woodbury auto dealership where he worked as a mechanic and had been staying overnight, authorities said. West Deptford police assisted in the arrest.
Allen was charged with sexual assault and child endangerment in connection with the alleged improper touching of a boy under 13 in West Deptford on June 17, 2012 and criminal sexual contact and child endangerment for allegedly touching a girl under 13 in West Deptford on June 20, 2012, said authorities. Allen had been free on $50,000 bail, authorities said.
A bench warrant was issued for Allen when he missed a Superior Court appearance on Sept. 15.
