YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A witness alerted an 11-year-old girl’s mother than the youngster was being sexually assaulted, and Garfield police quickly took a suspect into custody, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said this afternoon.

Alfonso  Salas Vazquez, 44, was being held on $150,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with aggravated sexual assault and child endangerment.

Molinelli said Garfield police arrested Vazquez – who is single and works at a Moonachie bakery — within minutes of receiving the call from the girl’s mother on Monday. They immediately notified the prosecutor’s Special Victims Unit, he said.

An initial Municipal Court appearance is set for Tuesday.
