University of Florida Police Arrest Battery Suspect

college_students.jpgOn Tuesday night, University of Florida police arrested a man who is suspected of inappropriately touching several female students on campus. Police had warned students Monday night after a woman reported being assaulted near Fine Arts Building C.

According to the victim’s account, the man approached her and said there was a large insect on her back. He then started brushing her back and told her the insect had crawled under her shirt and down the back of her pants. The suspect also tried to put his hand down her pants without her consent. Detectives at UR say there may be as many as 30 women who are possible victims of sexual battery.

As of Wednesday morning, Robin Garg, a 22-year-old student at UF, was being held without bond at the Alachua County jail on charges of battery. He was arrested near the Marston Science Library and was caught after trying to run from officers. According to Lt. Robert Wagner, it is likely that Garg will get additional charges.
