GPD: Darien Man Charged with Attempt to Entice a Minor by Computer

Over the past week the Greenwich Police Dept Special Victims Section conducted an undercover operation in which a Detective purported himself in an online chat app to be a 14-year-old girl from Greenwich. Police say the detective was eventually befriended by a Darien man, David Boyd Rewcastle, 59.

Over the course of the investigation Rewcastle began to steer the conversations toward becoming more sexually explicit in nature. He also began describing sex acts that he wanted to perform on the “14-year-old girl”…”in real life.”

The investigation culminated with Rewcastle making plans to meet with the “girl” in person in a specific location in Greenwich to carry out these sexual acts.

On Sept 23, 2022 Rewcastle followed through with his plan and traveled to Greenwich. He was arrested without incident when he arrived at the pre-arranged location in the area of Loughlin Ave in Cos Cob.

Rewcastle was charged with Criminal Attempt/Risk of Injury to a Child and Criminal Attempt/Enticing a Minor by Computer.

His bond was set at $150,000. He was assigned a date in Stamford Superior Court on Sept 26, 2022.
