    A Toms River man is facing multiple charges relating to the alleged sexual assault of juveniles, authorities announced today. 

    A two-month investigation alleges that Daniel Roy Plummer, 34, sexually assaulted four minor female victims, all known to him at the time of the incidents, according to a release from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office. 

    Toms River Police Det. Thomas Grosse and Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victim’s Unit Det. Stephanie Bayha arrested Plummer at his place of employment yesterday on three counts of sexual assault and four counts of endangering the welfare of a child, the release said. 

    Ocean County Superior Court Judge Wendel E. Daniels set bail $250,000 with no 10% option.

    In accordance with Nicole’s Law, authorities implemented a no victim contact order on behalf of the four victims, according to the release.

    Assisting in the investigation were the Division of Child Protection and Permanency, Det. Matthew Scutti of the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department’s Crime Scene Unit, Det. Jason Steele of the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victim’s Unit, and Det. David Brubaker and Det. Daniel Roske of the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office High Tech Crime Unit.
