Greenwich Police Nab Man Suspected in Mallard Drive Incidents

Barbara Heins | Nov 4, 2011 | 0 Comments

article.heading
Information supplied by Greenwich Police and does not indicate guilt or conviction.

A New Milford man has been arrested in connection with two incidents involving the attempted enticement
of two teenage girls into a van. In one incident, an 18-year-old was groped, Greenwich Police said.

James B. Magri, 27, of 3 Eden Ln., New Milford, surrendered Thursday
to Greenwich Police who obtained an arrest warrant charging hime with 4th-degree sexual assault and risk
of injury to a minor, both felonies.

Magri is accused of approaching a lone 18-year-old female walking on Mallard Drive while he was operating a
white van, on Oct. 31. Magri was able to convince that female to get in his van, police said. Magri attempted
to convince the female to engage in a consensual sex act but after being rebuffed, inappropriately touched
the victim, according to police.

"The victim thought she recognized him as someone she knew and got into the van.
But she didn't," said police spokesman Lt. Kraig Gray.
"As she got out of the van, he grabbed her breast. He groped over her clothing ... it was non-consensual."

The second incident happened on Nov. 2, a lone 14-year-old female walking on Mallard Drive was
approached by a man operating a white van.

Magri attempted to convince the girl to get in the van but "she told him forcefully, 'No,'" Gray said.

The suspect left the area as the girl began to use her cell phone to call her mother for help, Gray said.

According to Gray, "He left but he returned. She saw him two times."

That girl was able to provide police with a better description of the white van belonging to a
contracting company that was hired to work in the area, Gray said.

Gray said that the driver "never made any threats to the victims. Nobody was physically injured."

Both incidents occurred after 2 p.m., after school dismissals, Gray said.

Gray said, "Five percent of sexual assaults are committed by a stranger.

You have to be more vigilant to the ones who are closer to the family, who have the opportunity to take advantage.

But everyone should remain vigilant at all times. You don't walk alone, especially in the dark or in a unfamiliar place."

Magri was released on a $1,000 bond and is scheduled to appear Nov. 10 in state Superior Court in Stamford.

Greenwich police charged a New Milford man with fourth-degree sexual assault Thursday after he allegedly
touched a teenage girl inappropriately
after picking her up in a van in town earlier in the week. James B. Magri, 27, of 3 Eden Lane, was also
charged with risk of injury to a minor.

Magri turned himself in to Greenwich police Thursday after he learned the department held a
warrant for his arrest.

While driving a white van in Greenwich on Halloween, Magri pulled up to an 18-year-old girl

Magri convinced the girl to get into his van and then attempted to get her to engage in a
consensual sex act, police said.

After the girl turned down his advance, Magri touched her inappropriately, police said.

In a second alleged incident later in the week, Magri, again driving a white van, approached

11/04/11 Greenwich Post Breaking News Alert: Greenwich Police bust 'man in van' for groping incident - Where Is The Greenwich Time?


Breaking News Alert

Greenwich Police bust 'man in van' for groping incident.

FRIDAY 1:22 PM

Greenwich police have busted the man they believe is responsible for inappropriately touching a teenage girl this week.

James Magri, 27, of New Milford, was arrested Thursday after turning himself in to police. He was charged with fourth degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor in connection with two incidents in town this week while driving around Mallard Drive in a white van.

According to police, on Oct. 31, Mr. Magri was driving along Mallard and came across an 18-year-old female woman who was walking by herself. He allegedly convinced the young woman to get into his van and then tried to get her to engage in consensual sex. When she rebuffed this advance, police say Mr. Magri inappropriately touched her, but she was able to leave the van without further incident after that contact was made.

Police Public Information Officer Lt. Kraig Gray told the Post that the woman initially got into the van because she mistook Mr. Magri for someone she knew and that once she realized she was mistaken he had begun to drive away and she was unable to immediately leave.

Two days later, on Nov. 2, Mr. Magri was again driving on Mallard Drive and this time allegedly approached a 14-year-old girl who was walking on Mallard Drive. This time when he attempted to get the girl into the van, police say she refused and Mr. Magri fled the scene in the vehicle when she started to call for help with her cell phone.

Lt. Gray said that Mr. Magri was working in the area for a local contractor and the white van was a company vehicle. He stressed that the company owner was “very cooperative” with the investigation and assisting police in identifying Mr. Magri. Lt. Gray said the investigation is ongoing to determine if there were any additional incidents.

Mr. Magri was released on a $1,000 dollar bond and is scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on November 10.

"The first girl mistook him for someone she knew," Gray said. After the 18-year-old got into the van and discovered Magri wasn't an acquaintance, "she did everything to show that she was not interested," Gray said.

Gray said that 95 percent of all sexual assaults are perpetrated by a person the victim knows. He said Magri is a tradesman working for a contractor, but wouldn't elaborate....
