Police seek info on couple who committed ‘lewd act’ in Galleria parking lot
Police are looking for two people who were captured on cell phone video having sex in the parking lot behind the Galleria on Saturday afternoon.
Photos and videos of the incident quickly went viral after several witnesses posted them to Instagram and other social media websites.
Lt. Mark A. Farrall, a spokesman for the Newark Police Department, said the incident happened sometime in the afternoon hours near some dumpsters behind the building at 45 East Main St.
It happened “in broad daylight” and “in plain view of numerous passersby,” Farrall noted.
“It’s certainly not conduct that will be tolerated,” he said.
Several people reported the photos to the police, and officers themselves saw them on social media, Farrall said. The incident was not reported while it was in progress.
It’s bad enough for the couple that they were caught on cell phones and their images have gone world wide, but why do they police and DA consider it worthwhile pursuing them?
