Yuma man who is accused of being in Mesa | Sexually assaulted teenagers arrested Arizona News
MESA, AZ (3TV / CBS 5) – A man accused of sexually assaulting a teenager three years ago in Yuma was arrested in Mesa on Wednesday.
United States Marshals Service spokesman David Gonzales says 24-year-old Ricadro Ruan attacked the 15-year-old girl at his home in July 2018. He prevented her from leaving the house before sexually assaulting her. She passed out and Ruan started and left her alone, officials said.
According to Gonzales, on April 22nd, Ruan was charged with multiple sexual assaults on minors, sexual conduct with minors, and kidnapping in Yuma County. Police then discovered that Ruan had left the Yuma area.
After a thorough investigation, US Marshals found Ruan’s vehicle in a Mesa motel. On Wednesday, investigators saw Ruan leave a motel room and get into his vehicle when he was arrested. Ruan has been jailed and is awaiting extradition to Yuma County for charges.
“These types of horrific crimes against children require a strong response,” Gonzales said. “This arrest is an example of law enforcement agencies working together to remove dangerous individuals from the community.”
