YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Authorities have charged a 32-year-old Dumont man with having “inappropriate sexual activity” with an Elmwood Park girl over the course of a decade, beginning when she was five and he was 10.

David C. Polkowski, 32, who is single and unemployed, was being held on $200,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail.

Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said the woman, who has since moved out of New Jersey, is now 27 years old — which means the alleged assaults began in 1992 and ended in 2002.

Polkowski was charged with aggravated sexual assault and child endangerment after being arrested yesterday by members of Molinelli’s Special Victims Unit and Elmwood Park police.

“The victim recently contacted the Elmwood Park Police Department and reported to them what had occurred,” the prosecutor said late this afternoon.

“They contacted the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit and a detective from that Unit along with a detective from the Elmwood Park Police Department subsequently interviewed the victim,” Molinelli said. “She described to them in greater detail what had occurred, and the ensuing investigation resulted in [his] arrest.”
