Sex fiend busted
Cops: Hoboken sex fiend busted
HOBOKEN — When a woman being followed last week by a creepy man early in the morning displayed quick thinking and dialed 911 on her cell phone, she may have helped cops bust a sexual predator they suspect in three incidents in the Mile Square City over the past few weeks.
Shenoda Awad, 24, of Newkirk Street in Jersey City, was arrested in that incident, on March 6, and charged with possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes and resisting arrest, police said.
He was arrested again yesterday and charged with aggravated criminal sexual contact and criminal restraint in connection with an earlier incident, in which he is accused of shoving a woman up against a fence and trying to take off her clothes, police said.
And, cops say, Awad is also a suspect in a third incident, in which an 18-year-old woman fought off an attacker who grabbed her around the waist and tried to kiss her, cops said.
