Woman terrified after finding man in her vehicle while driving near Route 6



A woman reportedly had a terrifying experience early Monday morning after driving from a home in Massachusetts.

According to police, a Yarmouth Police Officer was patrolling near the Route 6 exit ramp just before 1:00 a.m. when he came upon a vehicle he thought was disabled. As he went to check on the car, he saw a woman standing outside of it attempting to dial 911. She appeared to be scared and upset as she explained to the officer what had just occurred.

The woman said she did not notice anything out of the ordinary after leaving her friend’s house, but a short time later a light came on inside her car while driving. As she looked into the back seat, she was surprised to see a man hiding with a coat pulled over his head. Extremely frightened, she began driving erratically and the man fell out of the open rear door of the car.

Following a brief investigation by Yarmouth Officers, Jailton Dos Santos, 36, of South Yarmouth, was arrested and charged with breaking and entering into a vehicle in the nighttime.

The Yarmouth Police would like to remind everyone to make sure they lock their unattended vehicles, especially at night.

    The headline should be ‘Racist Karen Charged with Attempted Murder’.

    This person is a good father and is just starting to get his life together. He can’t help the fact that systemic racism combined with his suffering from the genetic disease of addiction obviously caused this incident.

    Would we arrest a cancer patient? There’s zero difference here.
