Tiffin man charged after Hedges-Boyer Park incident




TIFFIN, OH — A Tiffin man accused of trying to solicit sexual favors for money during a relaxation massage in April was charged in connection to an incident at the pool at Hedges-Boyer Park on Tuesday.

The Tiffin Police Department says Naif M. Almarri, 43, of Tiffin, was arrested Tuesday on an April warrant from the Tiffin-Fostoria Municipal Court for misdemeanor sexual solicitation. Almarri is now being additionally charged with three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a child from the Tuesday incident at Hedges-Boyer Park, according to police.

Police say they were called to Designers Unlimited in April after Almarri allegedly tried to pay for sexual favors during a one-hour relaxation massage. On Tuesday, Tiffin Police received another call — this time at Hedges-Boyer Park.

According to police, Almarri was allegedly offering children candy and trying to lure them to leave the park with him. In addition, Almarri was going around the park asking women and girls for their phone numbers.

A 16-year-old boy told police that he had been approached by Almarri, who asked if he wanted to party or smoke marijuana. Additionally, a 14-year-old girl told authorities that Almarri had offered her candy, asking her if she wanted to “leave with him and go somewhere.”

Almarri was booked into Seneca County Jail on Tuesday.
