A Saugerties restaurant owner has been charged with a slew of felonies after police investigated a report accusing him of having sexual intercourse with a minor.

According to town police, 58-year-old Robert “Bobby” T. Bruno of Newburgh, previously the purveyor of Delicioso in the village and the owner and namesake of Bruno’s Pizza on Route 9W, was arrested Sept. 4 and charged with four counts of second-degree rape, second-degree criminal sex act and third-degree rape. A village court judge set Bruno’s bail at $50,000 cash or a $100,000 bond.
