The Peabody Patch is reporting this morning that a veteran Peabody police officer is facing indecent assault charges on a child, according to the Essex County District Attorney’s office.

The Patch wrote that “spokesperson Carrie Kimball-Monahan briefed local media outlets that officer Fred Wojick, 48, will be arraigned in Peabody District Court this morning on six counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 and one count of disseminating obscene material to a minor.”

The report said that state police detectives assigned to the DA’s office arrested Wojick last night at 7 p.m.

Here are some more details from the Boston Herald.

For sure, there will be more to come on this story.

    Good!!!! I always felt this guy was a bad cop. Lock him up and throw away the key. Convicts just love child molesters! Good luck.

    Innocent until proven guilty. All I’m saying.
