AdThe case initially came to light on December 13, 2023, when the Washington Township Police Department alerted the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit about a juvenile's alleged explicit contact.

The ensuing investigation, conducted jointly by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office and the Washington Township Police Department, uncovered that Davis had explicit contact with the child on two separate occasions in Washington Township and once in Wyckoff.

On December 19, 2023, Davis was apprehended and faced charges related to endangering the welfare of a child and aggravated criminal explicit contact.
