According to the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, Rothermel approached the two girls, who were playing in a yard in his apartment complex, and invited them back to his home on March 28. The investigation began after the parents of the 6-year-old girl called police. The girls were not physically injured, the press release stated.
The charges followed an investigation by Detective Russell Finkelstein of the Plainsboro Police Department and Su Kowalski of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office.
