Po­lice: Man in­ap­pro­pri­ately touched woman in su­per­mar­ket

Newark Post - - Police Blotter -

Po­lice ar­rested a Ne­wark man over the week­end and charged him with grab­bing a woman’s crotch while she was shop­ping at Acme.

The de­fen­dant is iden­ti­fied as 63-yearold Lawrence Dilorenzo.

Ac­cord­ing to Cpl. James Spadola, a spokesman for the Ne­wark Po­lice Depart­ment, the in­ci­dent oc­curred at ap­prox­i­mately 12:59 p.m. Aug. 17 at the gro­cery store in Sub­ur­ban Plaza off Elk­ton Road.

The vic­tim, a 22-year-old woman, told po­lice she was help­ing a man on a mo­tor­ized shop­ping cart and as she walked away, the man put his hand in her crotch re­gion, Spadola said. He left the store shortly af­ter, and the vic­tim didn’t re­port the in­ci­dent un­til the next day.

Spadola said po­lice re­viewed Acme’s sur­veil­lance footage and iden­ti­fied the man as Dilorenzo. He was ar­rested on Sun­day at the in­ter­sec­tion of South Main Street and West Delaware Av­enue and charged with third-de­gree un­law­ful sex­ual con­tact. He was later re­leased on $500 un­se­cured bail and is­sued a no con­tact or­der with the vic­tim and Acme.
