Harry Denney

Police say Bethel man met teen on MySpace:

Yet even another MySpace creeper from Connecticut. Is it something in the water?

BETHEL — The 46-year-old Bethel man charged with attempted sexual assault after police found him in a parked car with a 15-year-old girl last week met the teen on MySpace.com, police said.

Bethel Police Chief Jeffrey Finch said Monday that Harry Denney, of Rockwell Drive, met the underage girl on the popular social networking Web site about a year ago.

He wouldn’t say if Denney and the teen had contact prior to the meeting that resulted in Denney’s arrest in the high school parking lot Friday.

Officers who were patrolling the lot during a football game between Bethel and New Milford found the pair in a “suspicious vehicle” parked in a rear corner of the lot. Finch wouldn’t say what attracted attention to the car.

In addition to the sexual assault count, Denney was charged with risk of injury to a minor and loitering on school grounds. He was released on $10,000 bond for an appearance Nov. 14 in Danbury Superior Court.

The age difference between them is almost my age.

I was unable to find Denney’s MySpace. Hopefully, a tipster will provide.
