A friend of the 18-year-old victim became concerned for her safety when she saw the reportedly unconscious victim on Mason Mallon’s Snapchat post.
The friend called the Gibbsboro Police to check on the victim at the defendant’s West Clementon Road home.
Upon arrival, police found the victim disoriented, bruised and covered in blood in Mallon’s bedroom. She was transported to Cooper University Hospital for treatment.
After an investigation into the lead, Mason Mallon, 24, was charged with aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, aggravated assault, aggravated assault, criminal restraint and invasion of privacy.
Mallon was remanded to Camden County Jail pending a pretrial detention hearing set for August 29th in front of the Honorable Judge John T. Kelley in accordance with the New Jersey Bail Reform.
Under the recent Criminal Justice Reform rules, the court may order he be detained without bail or released with conditions.
The investigation into the matter is still ongoing and is being conducted by Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Allison Dube-Smith (856) 225-7105.
