N.J. swim team coach allegedly had sexual relationship with teen

Prosecutors say a former assistant coach at a New Jersey swim club had a sexual relationship with a teenage member of the swim team.

Joseph Blake faces charges of child endangerment, stalking and two counts of sexual assault. Bail was set at $250,000 for the 25-year-old Haddon Heights man, and it wasn’t known if he’s retained an attorney.

Prosecutors say the victim was between 15- and 17-years-old when the assaults occurred between 2011 and 2013. The teen’s gender was not disclosed.

A telephone number for Blake could not be located Saturday.
