NORTH GREENBUSH, N.Y. –  An arrest has been made in connection to a forcible touching incident which took place near a car wash on Tuesday afternoon.

North Greenbush Police say they arrested Bruce Bargy, Jr., 36, for Forcible Touching, a misdemeanor. The West Sand Lake Resident was arrested on Wednesday around 1:30 p.m. after police were contacted by a truck driver who witnessed the incident on Tuesday.

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, police decided to contact the FBI’s Violent Crime Against Children (VCAC) Task Force.  

A search warrant was executed at the man’s home and property was seized at the location.  North Greenbush Police say this is a separate investigation which is on-going at this time.

A female told authorities that she was jogging in the area of Hoffman’s Car Wash on Route 150 when she was suddenly approached from behind by a man unknown to her and then 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 is shaken up.

Bargy was arraigned in Town Court on Wednesday night.
