The man wrapped his arms around her and she told him several times to get off her. He proceeded to smack her buttocks and propositioned her for sex. The victim then called the police and when police arrived, they found the suspect in the area. He was identified as Diego Sicha, 27, of Maple Avenue, Danbury. The victim positively identified Sicha as the suspect and he was taken into custody. Sicha was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and breach of peace. He was held on $1,500 bond.
In an unrelated case, Danbury police were called to Kingswood Road on a report of an accident with one car leaving the scene Saturday at about 6:22 p.m. The victim's vehicle was struck by a white Ford Van that failed to stop after hitting the victim's car. While investigating the accident, dispatch told officers the suspect vehicle may be further down the road stuck in mud. Police saw the suspect van was damaged in a way that looked consistent with the accident they'd just left. Officers spoke to the operator, who they identified as David Hill IV, 32, Kingswood Road, Danbury. Officers immediately detected an odor of alcohol emanating from Hill. Hill also had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. Officers administered the standardized field tests to Hill which he failed. Hill was charged and transported to HQ. Hill was found at fault for the accident, and was charged with driving under the influence, evading the scene of an accident and failure to maintain the proper lane. He was held on a $2,500.00 bond.
