Accused child predator arrested
A noteworthy incident transpired over the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel for about the past hour or so…
Man arrested; allegedly tried get boy into bathroom
A call came into the police this afternoon – alleging that a man tried to lure a boy into the bathroom at Columbus Park. He was described as an Hispanic male, wearing a “red Mexican hat,” and between 5’7″ – 5’8″ in height. Police immediately responded to the area, and soon picked up a man matching that description near 8th and Monroe. He had a red bandana (are those called Mexican hats these days?)
After a lengthy process of tracking the original caller of this incident down, the police finally arranged for the supposed victims to identify the man. After positive identification, the family chose to press charges, and the man was arrested and brought down to Police Headquarters.
Lesson: Never let your guard down!
