    Authorities have charged a man with sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl during a class trip to a popular amusement park.

    Police say Glen San-Andreas, 34, of Wilmington, Del., was held on $150,000 bail and while he awaited extradition to New Jersey. He's charged with second-degree sexual assault and child endangerment.

    Jackson Police Lt. Steven Laskiewicz tells The Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J.  that San-Andreas was a parental chaperone on an April 27 trip to Six Flags Great Adventure.

    Police say San-Andreas took the girl to a secluded area of the park and assaulted her.

    Delaware State Police contacted Jackson police on May 7.

    Six Flags spokeswoman Kristen Siebeneicher said the company was unaware of this incident until brought it to the company's attention.

    "At Six Flags, our top priority is the safety of our guests and employees and we do not condone inappropriate behavior in our parks," Siebeneicher said. "We were not previously made aware of this situation, but if it had been reported to us, we would have immediately turned the incident over to local authorities for investigation."

    Great Adventure is part of the Six Flags complex in Jackson, N.J. -- about a one hour drive east of Philadelphia. Besides Great Adventure, the complex also includes the Hurricane Harbor water park and the soon-to-open Safari Off-Road Adventure.
