New Jersey Cop Arrested for Attempted Sexual Assault of 15-Year-Old Girl

Ridgewood cop 28-year-old Peter Tuchol, Jr. was arrested and charged with luring, attempted sexual assault, attempted endangering the welfare of a child as well as possession of controlled substances, and other charges.

According to authorities, officer Tuchol participated in online conversations with undercover investigators who were posting as a 15-year-old girl.

Tuchol later arranged a meeting with the underage teenager to engage in sex, authorities said.

That’s when police obtained a search warrant for Tuchol’s home and allegedly seized controlled substances, specifically anabolic steroids.

On April 11, a Cyber Crimes Unit began speaking with Tuchol via the dating app Tinder, leading him on to believe he was speaking with an underage, teenage girl, according to an arrest affidavit.

Officer Tuchol persisted to communicate with the undercover detective via Tinder before moving to text messages and phone conversations.

Tuchol’s Tinder profile showed him in a police uniform taken in front of a bathroom mirror, which helped to identify him.

Officer Tuchol was then arrested in Bergen County.

Officials said Tuchol works for the Ridgewood Police Department as a patrol officer, and that he is currently suspended.

“We are working closely with the Bergen County Prosecutors Office in this matter and they are the lead agency in the investigation.” a spokesman from the department said, according to ABC7.

According to Tuchol’s arrest affidavit, Tuchol to the undercover investigator, who was posing as an underage girl, “I know ur young. But can you be an adult please” after she didn’t answer a phone call.

The undercover detective requested Tuchol stop texting her several times, but he persisted, saying they both wanted to have sex.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
