PINE BEACH – A Beachwood man who was employed at the Pine Beach Roy Rogers has been arrested and charged with harassment and criminal sexual contact.

Michael Arellano, 25, of Beachwood was arrested by Pine Beach Police and county’s Special Victim’s Unit and charged with three counts of harassment (offensive touching) and one count of criminal sexual contact.

“The subsequent investigation alleges Arellano inappropriately touched the girl’s bodies numerous times over their clothing out of the view of others. The victims physically and verbally objected, however the inappropriate touching continued. All the victims stated that the acts occurred soon after they were hired. They have each since ended their employment at the restaurant,” the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office said in a Feb. 9 press release.

Police processed and released Arellano.
