DAVIE, FL (WFLA)– A man accused of groping women at South Florida parks posted a very descriptive confession on YouTube.
Ricardo Ruiz was arrested on Tuesday after groping a woman at a park in Davie. He not only admitted to the crime to police, he shared his story on YouTube that very same day.
“So I just left the park. I was running. I walked out. It was, like, a mountain park called vista view. And I seen this one Spanish girl. Yoga pants, yoga bra, whatever. **** tight,” he said.
He then goes into detail about the encounter.
“I was running behind that mother. The last girl. I was running up behind her. She looked good man. I just, like, grabbed her, like grabbed her ***. Just grabbed her ***. Just grabbed her ***. And then she, like, turned around. And I was like, why’d you stop?”
And repeatedly says how he touched them.
“I ran up to her again and I punched her butt. I punched her butt. Like I didn’t do it hard like fighting, but like, you know, just like – punched her. You know, punched her like, gave her a little slap.”
Officials say Ruiz didn’t stop in Davie. They say he exposed himself at a park in Cooper City that same day.
Ruiz was taken to the Broward County jail in Fort Lauderdale and charged with two counts of touching or striking with battery and exposing his genitals in public.
He has since bonded out, making people feel uneasy.
“So citizens are recommended, we have to take action. A lot of people have got to start watching the telephone and all these apps and crazy stuff, just watch what’s going on,” said Jorge Ferrero, who was visiting a Davie park.
“As long as his pictures up, people are aware and watching out,” said Mindy Christensen.
They say they will be watching out at the park and on the internet.
“**** man, today was a good **** day. Touching ***. If you don’t touch ***, you’re crazy. That’s all I gotta say,” said Ricardo Ruiz.
Police say yet another groping incident was reported in the city of Hollywood, Florida.
