JERSEY CITY, NJ (WCBS 880) - Police and U.S. Marshals tracked down 40-year-old Lamar Fields, who they say was hiding in an assisted living facility in Brooklyn.

LISTEN: WCBS 880’s Levon Putney reports

“He was found hiding in a closet,” Hudson County Prosecutor Ed DeFazio told WCBS 880’s Levon Putney.

DeFazio says the Jersey City man broke into two homes in Jersey City and sexually assaulted two women earlier this month.

DeFazio says, “He was armed with a knife on one occasion and with a fork on another occasion. He terrorized the victims.”

DeFazio says neither victim knew Fields, who is now being held in Brooklyn pending extradition.
