Man Arrested For Groping Multiple Women
A creepy Florida man was recently arrested after authorities say he became a serial butt groper who grabbed and slapped the booties of multiple random women.
Florida deputies believe they have apprehended their serial butt groper.
Kenneth Anthony Lopez, 20, was charged with five counts of simple battery for allegedly targeting women, and slapping or grabbing their buttocks over the past four months at a Cooper City subdivision popular with joggers.
When approached by authorities, he blurted out that he thought he knew the victim and “only touched her a little bit.”
The department had actually set up a sting operation at the subdivision on Tuesday, the day of the arrest, and used a decoy in hopes of drawing out the suspect.
That plan was not a success, but 45 minutes after it ended they got a call from a woman who was groped by a man with the same description as the perpetrator in the other incidents.
The officers raced over to the scene and found Lopez.
The suspect was dressed in dark clothing and was holding a blue hat that he wore to conceal his face when he grabbed the woman’s left buttock, authorities said in a report.
Lopez, who lives in the adjourning town of Pembroke Pines, spontaneously admitted to touching the victim before he was even questioned.
“I’m sorry, I thought I knew that girl. I didn’t mean to touch her,” he said, according to the report. “I just thought I knew her. I only touched her a little bit.”
Lopez was arrested and at the station he admitted to inappropriately touching the buttocks of three or four different women — though law enforcement officials believe there are more incidents.
People in Florida are really, really, weird.
