A former bagel shop supervisor has been accused of inappropriately touching three juvenile employees.

According to police, on Jan. 21st at 2:38 p.m., two juvenile males, accompanied by a parent, came to police headquarters to file a complaint.

The juveniles reported that during their employment at Adams Hot Bagels and Grill, located in Budd Lake, they were approached and touched inappropriately by a supervisor identified as Mr. Bajram Leka.

A subsequent investigation by Mt. Olive Twp. Police determined a third male juvenile had also been the victim of similar behavior by Leka while employed at the business.

Detectives made contact with Leka, and a short time later he turned himself into police.

Police ultimately charged Leka with three counts of Criminal Sexual Contact and he was lodged in the Morris County Correctional Facility pending a court hearing.

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the Mt. Olive Twp. Police.
