The Union County Prosecutor’s Office is currently investigating an assault that occurred at the Walter E. Ulrich Memorial Pool in Rahway last month. The incident involved a juvenile girl who was at the pool on Sunday, July 22. According to officials, the victim was approached by an unknown man wearing swim trunks around 3 p.m. The man proceeded to assault her.
Authorities have described the assailant as a middle-aged, bald, white male with either blue or green eyes. He is said to be somewhat heavyset and stands between 5 feet 5 inches and 5 feet 6 inches tall. It remains unclear when the assault was initially reported to law enforcement or how long investigators were aware of the incident before seeking public assistance.
