Norwood police arrested a Hudson County handyman after two female passersby said they saw him masturbating in his vehicle.

Ernesto Martinez, 34, of West New York was working a job in the area when the women told police they saw him busy doing something else while parked on Rio Vista Drive around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Police Chief Jeff Krapels said.

Martinez drove away but was stopped and arrested by police a short time later, the chief said.

They charged Martinez with lewdness and released him pending a Municipal Court hearing.
