A Middlesex County man who police say committed a lewd act in front of children at a Secaucus park has been arrested.

Rizwan Ashraf was arrested Friday afternoon and charged with sexual assault, criminal sexual contact, lewdness and endangering the welfare of a child, police Capt. Dennis Miller said. Ashraf was taken to the Hudson County jail in Kearny and is expected to appear in court Saturday or Monday.

“This was an outstanding job by the patrol, traffic and detective divisions all working collaboratively, which led to the arrest,” Miller said. “The safety of the children in this town is of paramount concern.”
