Security guard charged with assault of teenager

A 14 year old teenager accuses a man nearly three times her age of assaulting her earlier this week.

On January 13, according to the minor, 55 year old Adrian Cruz inappropriately touched her in her private area.

Adrian Cruz, a security guard, pleaded not guilty to a charge of sexual indecent assault before Magistrate Hettie Mae Stuart, who agreed with prosecutors that Cruz should not be offered bail.

The prosecutors contended that Cruz may interfere with the complainant, is a flight risk and asked that the girl’s status as a minor be taken into consideration.

Adrian Cruz was remanded to the Central Prison until February 20, when he will next appear in court.
