Woman Discovers Terrifying Encounter with Man Hiding in Backseat of Moving Car

In a distressing incident, a woman was left shaken and frightened after discovering a man concealed in the backseat of her car while driving, according to the Yarmouth Police Department in Massachusetts.

A police officer on patrol near the Route 6 exit ramp around 1 a.m. on Monday came across a vehicle that appeared to be disabled. As the officer approached, he noticed a woman standing outside the car, visibly distressed and attempting to call 911. She explained to the officer what had just transpired.

The woman recounted that she had left her friend’s house and initially noticed nothing unusual. However, a short time into her journey, an unexpected light illuminated the car, causing her alarm. Upon investigating, she was shocked to find a man hiding with a coat over his head in the backseat.

Overwhelmed with fear, the woman began driving erratically, causing the man to fall out of the open rear door onto the road, escaping from the vehicle, as per the Yarmouth Police Department.

After a brief investigation, officers apprehended the suspect, identified as 36-year-old Jailton Dos Santos from South Yarmouth. He was charged with breaking and entering into a vehicle during the nighttime.

The authorities did not disclose the motive behind Dos Santos’ presence in the woman’s car.

While the victim escaped physically unharmed, the Yarmouth Police Department took the opportunity to remind everyone of the importance of locking unattended vehicles, especially at night.
