A 42-year-old illegal immigrant is accused of assaulting a woman after an encounter outside a Pontiac bar
A 26-year-old Waterford woman told police on June 19 at about 9 a.m. that she had been assaulted by an unknown man at about 2 a.m., police said. She said she was at Charley's Roost in Pontiac when she was approached by the man. He offered to drive her home, but she refused, police said.
The woman started walking home to Waterford when the man appeared on foot on County Center Road, near Pontiac Lake Road, police said. Police said the man grabbed the woman, saying he loved her.
The woman pulled away and ran off, but the man ran after her, grabbed her and punched her in the face, police said.
Police said the victim woke up and discovered she had been beaten and was partially clothed. She ran home and was taken to a hospital by a relative.
Officers investigated and followed tips, which led to the arrest of Cesar Antonio Ruiz (pictured) on Wednesday in connection with the assault, police said. Ruiz is an illegal immigrant and a resident of Pontiac, police said.
Ruiz was charged on Friday by the Oakland County prosecutor's office with felony assault with intent to cause great bodily harm, less than murder, and a second charge of misdemeanor aggravated assault, police said.
Ruiz was given a bond of $100,000 and was returned to the Oakland County Jail. His preliminary examination is pending.
Let's hope this creep is deported after serving his time in prison.
