NORTH GREENBUSH, N.Y. – An arrest has been made in connection to a forcible touching incident which took place near a car wash in North Greenbush on Tuesday afternoon.
North Greenbush Police said they arrested Bruce Bargy, Jr., 36, for Forcible Touching, a misdemeanor. The West Sand Lake resident was arrested on Wednesday at around 1:30 p.m. after police were contacted by a truck driver who witnessed the incident.
The truck driver told authorities he passed a person on Route 150 who fit the description of the man who inappropriately touched a female jogger.
According to authorities, while Bargy was being questioned, he confessed to the forcible touching crime. Police also said other information during questioning led police to decide to contact the FBI's Violent Crime Against Children Task Force.
A search warrant was executed at the man's home, and property was seized at the location. North Greenbush Police said the search was a separate investigation which is currently on-going.
A female told authorities she was jogging in the area of Hoffman's Car Wash on Route 150 in Wynantskill when she was suddenly approached from behind by a man unknown to her, and then he touched her inappropriately.
The suspect ran off after the victim turned around and pushed him away.
The woman was not injured, although according to a statement released by Police Chief Robert Durivage, she was shaken up.
Bargy was arraigned in Town Court Wednesday night.
