Serial Butt Grabber Caught in Broward: Authorities

A man accused of grabbing several womens' behinds in Broward neighborhoods was behind bars Wednesday.

Kenneth Lopez, 20, is facing five counts of battery after authorities say he targeted women in at least two Cooper City neighborhoods.

Lopez appeared before Broward Judge John Hurley Wednesday following his arrest Tuesday. He was ordered held on $5,000 bond and it was unknown if he has an attorney.

According to the arrest report read by Hurley, Lopez targeted women in the Stonebridge and Rock Creek neighborhoods. He almost picked one woman off the ground while grabbing her behind, Hurley said.

The four incidents Lopez is charged in date back to December, authorities said.

One of the victims, who didn't want to be identified, said she was grabbed while she was out on a run.

"All of a sudden I heard someone right behind me jogging at a steady pace and he grabbed my behind and kept jogging, I was so shocked," she said.

The woman didn't know who the suspect was until he was arrested.

"The more I thought about it I realized it could start out like this and turn into something more somewhere down the line and it could happen to a younger girl and it just isn't right," she said.

Lopez, who has no previous arrests, will have to wear an ankle monitor if he posts bond, Hurley said.
