Two Romulus police investigations into sexual assault allegations have led to charges for two men, investigators announced.

Josue Osmin Cortez-Mendoza and Christopher Joseph Jordan were arraigned in 34th District Court this week in separate cases.

Detectives began investigating Jordan in October and allege he had sexually assaulted his 15-year-old stepdaughter starting in 2016, police reported.

In November, a referral from state Children’s Protective Services officials led city investigators to explore claims against Cortez-Mendoza. Their probe linked him to sexual assaults involving three victims aged 11, 13 and 16, authorities said this week.

Cortez-Mendoza was charged Monday with six counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct and held at Wayne County Jail. Judge Michael Golematis set bond at $250,000 and ordered that he be placed on a tether and have no contact with the victims or their relatives.

Jordan, 29, was charged Wednesday with first-degree criminal sexual conduct, second-degree criminal sexual conduct and third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Judge David Parrott set bond at $500,000. Jordan remained behind bars and faces a probable cause hearing at 9 a.m. Jan. 31.

Anyone who believes they were victimized by either man is asked to contact the Romulus Police Department at (734) 941-8400.
