Man Charged With Groping Potential Employee

 

              On 11/5/2010 at about noon, a Fayetteville Police Officer on bike patrol at Cross Creek Mall was flagged down by a woman who said she needed assistance.                The woman said a man who works at the mall claimed he was hiring her and took her to a back room to fill out additional paperwork. Once in the room, the suspect began touching her inappropriately and assaulting her. The victim said the incident occurred on the evening of 11/3/2010. She said she was scared to report the incident originally but decided to come forward to prevent it from happening to other victims.               After reviewing surveillance video and other evidence in the case, police arrested and charged Jose Antonio Cruz, 34, of 2239 Wingate Road with Second Degree Sexual Offense, Sexual Battery and Assault on a Female.               Cruz is being processed at the Cumberland County Jail at this time. The Fayetteville Police Department will provide Cruz’s mug shot and bond amount as it becomes available. Police encourage victims of similar incidents to file a report when such incidents occur.
