A Glen Rock man who was charged with sexual assault worked for the Ridgewood YMCA for five months that ended in early February, NorthJersey.com reported.

According to the report, Abelardo Ramirez, 46, was a temporary maintenance worker up until Feb. 7. Before that, he spent about a year and eight months working for Jannet International, the company that cleans the YMCA facility, the report said.

While he was working there, the YMCA received no reports of any issues with Ramirez, but is launching an internal investigation to, “assure that no inappropriate behavior occurred,” Y officials told NorthJersey.com.

While investigations are pending, he will not be working at the Y, the report said.

Ramirez was arrested last month after a Bergenfield woman alleged that he assaulted her when she was a teen, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office said.
