Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella announced the arrest of RANDY GALLMAN (DOB: 3/05/1984; single; florist delivery person) of Jersey City, NJ on charges of Attempted Sexual Assault, Criminal Sexual Contact, and Criminal Restraint. The arrest is the result of an investigation conducted by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office under the direction of Chief Robert Anzilotti, the Fort Lee Police Department under the direction of Chief Matthew Hintze, and the Leonia Police Department under the direction of Acting Chief Scott Tamagny.
On Tuesday, December 29, 2020, the Leonia Police Department received a 911 call from a woman who reported that she had just been attacked. Upon speaking with the woman, the Leonia Police learned that she had been touched on her intimate parts by an unknown male while she was walking in Fort Lee. She stated that she screamed and the male fled. She then began walking towards Leonia when she was approached by the same male again. He grabbed her, began to drag her to an alley, and again touched her on her intimate parts. The woman screamed and he fled. At that time, the woman called 911. Leonia Police contacted Fort Lee Police and the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit and an investigation was initiated. The investigation revealed that RANDY GALLMAN attacked the victim.
As a result of the investigation, on Wednesday, December 30, 2020, RANDY GALLMAN was arrested and charged with one count of Attempted Sexual Assault, in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:5-1a(1)/2C:14-2c(1), a 2nd degree crime; one count of Criminal Restraint, in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:13-2b, a 3rd degree crime; and two counts of Criminal Sexual Contact, in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:14-3b, a 4th degree crime.
