LAKE GEORGE — A Saratoga County man is accused of sexually harassing about 15 female employees at a Lake George business between June 2016 and July 2017, according to the Warren County Sheriff's Office.

Jonathan L. LaRock, 65, of Michael Road in Moreau, was arrested Wednesday by the sheriff's office.

The employees at Howard Johnson's Restaurant making the accusations range in age from 14 to 43. LaRock forcibly subjected an employee to unwanted sexual contact, restrained employees against their will and made inappropriate suggestions, some sexual in nature, according to the sheriff's office. He offered drugs and alcohol to several employees younger than 17, according to the sheriff's office.

A 17-year-old female employee originally contacted the sheriff's office, which began the investigation. After several interviews with other alleged victims, charges were filed, according to the sheriff's office.

LaRock faces one count of felony first-degree sexual abuse, two counts of misdemeanor unlawful imprisonment and four counts of misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child.

He is to be arraigned Thursday at Lake George Town Court.

Anyone with information on LaRock should contact the sheriff's office at 518-743-2500.
