A New Jersey man working as a cable repair subcontractor has been charged with making unwanted sexual advances toward a woman and forcibly touching her while at the home to repair a cable modem, according to Stony Point police.
Jonathan Malave, 29, of 67 Bremond St. #2, Belleville, was arrested after an investigation of an incident that took place at a Stony Point home on Tuesday. Police said Malave, a subcontractor for Cablevision, was on a scheduled repair call at the time of the incident.
Police said that while on the repair call he failed to fix the modem and engaged in unwanted sexual advances toward the 32-year-old victim. Police said Malave is accused of forcibly touching the victim in an intimate area.
Stony Point detectives arrested Malave a short time after he left the residence. He was later released pending a May 15 hearing in Stony Point Town Court.
Police said the victim was not injured in the incident.
In a statement this afternoon, Cablevision said it is also investigating the incident.
"We take the safety and security of our customers very seriously," the statement said. "We are investigating the matter fully and cooperating with authorities."
