Woman Lured Ex-Boyfriend to Wyckoff School for Vicious Beating, Police Say

19-year-old Margaux Tocci allegedly lured an ex-boyfriend from Ridgewood to Lincoln School in Wyckoff Thursday night, where he was beaten and robbed by two men who remain at large.

A Wyckoff woman is facing multiple charges for allegedly luring an ex-boyfriend to a vacant schoolyard where two men beat him bloody with a bat and a pipe before robbing him.

Margaux H. Tocci, of Sicomac Avenue, was charged Friday with robbery and theft by being armed with deadly weapons, by aiding suspects and luring the victim to the scene of the crime, and providing transportation from the scene for the suspects, police stated Friday.

According to Wyckoff Police Chief Benjamin Fox, Tocci called the victim, a 19-year-old Ridgewood man described as an ex-boyfriend, and asked if he wanted to drive around in a new car she had recently purchased. Fox said Tocci brought him to Lincoln Elementary School at around 10:30 p.m. under the guise they would go for a walk.

"He was then approached by two males, in their late teens or early twenties, carrying a baseball bat and a pipe," Fox said. "The men beat him as Tocci allegedly watched. The men took his wallet and removed the cash, as well as his cell phone that they smashed. The victim was left bleeding on the ground, and the men got into Tocci's car and she drove them away."

The Ridgewood victim made it to the home of a nearby resident and called 911. He was transported to the hospital with head injuries that required stitches, and was later released.

Police said a blue Ford Fusion matching the description of the car at the attack was spotted on Franklin Avenue at around 3 a.m. 

Tocci, the only occupant, was taken to headquarters by a sergeant and subsequently charged, Fox said. She did not provide information on the two men believed to have perpetrated the attack, according to the chief.

She was remanded to Bergen County Jail in Hackensack and released after posting her $50,000 bond for the alleged crime, a first-degree charge.

A motive for the alleged beating and robbery has not been released but Fox said investigators will work tirelessly to close the investigation.

"The department is committed to fully investigating and apprehending the other two individuals involved in this violent, apparently premeditated assault," Fox said.

Those who choose to exact violence on others "do so at their peril," the chief told Patch. "We're absolutely committing manpower to apprehending the individuals involved."

The attack is the second this month in Wyckoff involving teens with baseball bats and other objects.

An was arrested and charged in July for allegedly beating a group of men he reportedly owed money to.

To bad the criminal justice system in jersey is a joke, and citizens cannot protect themselves by carrying guns. In my town in nj the police took out a career criminal who was waving a gun around, he had 25 convictions on his record, and was recently released after serving the bare minimum of his sentence.

wow, her parents must be so proud....in other articles, people who claim to know her said that her ex used to beat her. Well if that is the case, then she should of used her brain and contacted the police and her parents, not beat the crap out of this guy, then smile on her mugshot. Very classy. I wonder what her parents are like?
