Suspect who broke into NYC jails faces new charges

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) -- A man who allegedly repeatedly used phony credentials to gain entry into New York City's jails is facing new charges.
 
The Daily News reports that a new criminal complaint accuses Matthew Matagrano of groping and strip-searching an inmate during one of those visits on Feb. 27.
 
Court papers say Matagrano ordered his victim into a cell and forced the man to strip and be searched. The inmate filed a complaint, resulting in the new charge of burglary as a sexually motivated felony.
 
The complaint says Matagrano was "pretending to be an investigator from the Intelligence Unit."
 
Matagrano, a former inmate, was previously indicted for burglary, criminal impersonation and other charges. He pleaded not guilty.
 
The News says the Department of Correction didn't respond to a request for comment.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
