Police grab alleged grocery groper
Police believe they've nabbed the infamous Elmwood Park grocery groper.
Matthew Brandli, a 34-year-old from Ridgefield Park, was found lurking in the same shopping plaza where two female shoppers were sexually assaulted recently.
An officer on patrol spotted and tailed Brandli going into and out of stores without making any purchases, just as the attacker had done. A detective on the case was called in and determined Brandli matched the person recorded in surveillance footage of both attacks.
Brandli is charged with attempted criminal contact and offensive touching.
