Hoboken Police Arrests 52-Year-Old Man for Lewd Behavior

Hoboken Police arrested the man on Saturday at a Park Avenue building.

Hoboken police arrested a 52-year-old man for lewd behavior in a residential building Saturday.

Angel Martinez Delgado was charged with lewdness after he allegedly was seen masturbating in the hallway of a building on Park Avenue between 12th and 13th streets, police said.

Delgado allegedly entered the building's elevator around 1 a.m., at the same time as a female resident of the building, police said.

The woman walked into the elevator with her daughter, police said. Inside the elevator, the woman told police, Delgado started staring at her "intensely," according to a police report.

When the elevator reached the fourth floor, the woman ran out of the elevator, entered her apartment with her daughter and slammed the door shut, police said. When the woman looked through the peephole in her door, she told police she allegedly saw the man masturbating, according to the report.

She then called police, who arrived at the scene and responded to Delgado's apartment on the third floor.

The woman then identified Delgado as the man she had seen outside her door, police said.

The woman appeared distressed, police said, and the Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps arrived to tend to her.

Delgado was arrested and charged with lewdness, according to police.

it seems like there are many seemingly personal crimes committed in hoboken. getting beat up (and/or mugged), on the street in broad daylight or better yet...in the lobby of your own apt building. coming home to a stranger taking a bath in your bathtub/eating out of your fridge/wearing your slippers. people dangling from your balcony enjoying sprits from your liquor cabinet. i guess you can't get very far if all you have is a bike to take you there.

Look at the common profile - none of the alleged criminals are Irish, Italian, Jewish, Swedish, Iranian, Iraqi --- the criminals are the same demographic as the groups populating the prison system.....

The Irish, Italians and Jews etc. have had their share of alleged and actually proven criminals. Your racist rant says a whole lot more about you than about the groups you are trying to cast aspersions at. And your use of the name "HobokenTownie" is an insult to all the good honorable people of all ethnic and religious persuasions who were born here or have chosen this town to be their home.

demosthenes - Nothing i said was factually inaccurate. The vast majority of violent crime proliferated in Hoboken at the present time is being committed by the same demographic populating the prison system. You can't argue with facts. It is not a racist rant, it is a factual statement! Feel free to make a factual statement showing me that I am wrong instead of your overly liberal rant.... facts are facts.

demosthenes - I found one of your prior sexist rants and think you need to step of your moral high horse...Twit of a woman... I assume that means you are a Misogynist or sexist. Shame on you. "Good point about people's qualifications! Unlike all those unqualified zimmerites, your qualifications to be a political shill are unassailable. Too bad that unqualified twit of a woman mayor didn't know enough to hire you."
