SOUTH HACKENSACK, N.J. – A South Hackensack teacher’s aide was arrested Thursday and charged with sexually assaulting a young girl, Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said.

Philip Cerone, 27, of Maywood was being held in the Bergen County Jail pending a first appearance Friday in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.

Cerone -- who was also an assistant varsity baseball coach at Hackensack High School and girls basketball coach in South Hackensack -- is formally charged with "sexual assault by a supervisor" of a juvenile between 16-17 years old and "child endangerment by sexual contact," according to jail records.

Cerrone "was a substitute in the [Maywood] District before leaving for a job in South Hackensack," Schools Supt. Michael Jordan told Daily Voice on Friday. "He was in Maywood as a sub intermittently I believe 3 years ago."
