44-year-old Jackie Barcliff, who allegedly sexually assaulted a 56-year-old woman before throwing her off the second second story of Pier 15 on Monday, is now in police custody. The NYPD announced they were looking for him earlier this week in a statement that was sure to note — repeatedly — that the victim recognized her attacker from the Occupy Wall Street protests (you know, just in case any demonstrators intending to commemorate the movement’s first anniversary on Monday wanted to rethink their plans.) Fortunately for everyone, Barcliff, who has also been charged with the rape of a 14-year-old girl, turned himself in on Friday after seeing his picture in the news.
