The names and photographs of 10 men arrested were sent out by Newark police the following day, with the wrong photograph, but with the correct spelling and hometown of the arrested Mohamad Ibrahim of Elizabeth.
Besides having the same name, the arrested man and the misidentified man are the same height and weight, and approximately the same age. Several men were arrested on charges of soliciting prostitution in a vice sweep Friday night in Newark, Director of Public Safety Anthony Ambrose said.
