HOBOKEN, N.J. (AP) - A Jersey City man has been charged with groping a woman and exposing himself while waiting with a crowd for the Colombian national soccer team at a Hoboken hotel.

The Jersey Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1rexzZl ) that 53-year-old Ashraf Morcos was charged with lewdness and criminal sexual contact for the incident Tuesday outside the W Hotel.

Police say he touched a 34-year-old woman’s back and buttocks and also exposed himself by pulling his pants down.

Court officials said his scheduled first appearance was delayed because an Arabic translator wasn’t available. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney.

The soccer team was staying at the hotel ahead of its win over the Canadian national team Wednesday at Red Bull Arena in Harrison.
