Jailton Dos Santos, 36, was arrested for hiding in the backseat of the unnamed woman’s car as she was driving home in Cape Cod, in the US state of Massachusetts.

The woman then began driving erratically, causing the man on the back seat to fall out of the open rear door of the car, according to the police.

She then pulled over, got out of the car and tried to call the police.

A police patrol reportedly approached the vehicle by the side of the highway shortly before 1am on Monday, 17th July, and found the woman trying to dial 911.

They said that she was “scared and upset” and told the police what had just happened.

The police then conducted a “brief investigation” and detained the suspect, who they have now charged with breaking and entering.

Newsflash obtained a statement from the Yarmouth Police Department on 17th July saying that the Yarmouth man was “charged with breaking and entering” following the incident, which left the woman “terrified.”

The statement also said: “A Yarmouth Police Officer was patrolling near the Route 6 exit ramp just before 1 AM 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.”
