HACKENSACK, NJ - A 30-year-old Uber Eats driver faces charges after police say he was caught masturbating in his vehicle during a food delivery.

Vinicius Porto was arrested June 14 and charged with lewdness in connection with the incident, which occurred the previous afternoon in Hackensack, Police Capt. Darrin DeWitt said in a news release.

Around 4:45 p.m. on June 13, a 23-year-old woman received her food from Sarku Japan delivered in an unstapled bag and thought it was unusual, so she approached the delivery driver, who was still parked in front of her house, the captain said.

When the woman observed him masturbating in the front seat of his black Ford Explorer, she used her cell phone to record the incident before the driver left the area, DeWitt said.

After an investigation by Detectives Robert Ghirardi and Michael Koenig, Porto was arrested and released pending a June 19 court appearance, the captain said.
