Teacher’s tip leads to child indecency arrest

A Hays County Grand Jury indicted a Kyle man who is accused of inappropriately touching a child in 2016.

Jose Isabel Marin Ruiz, 35, of Kyle, was indicted on two counts of indecency with a child based on an incident in the Shady Oaks area of Kyle on March 1, 2016.

According to an arrest warrant, Buda Police began an investigation into the sexual assault of a child based on information from teachers at Tom Green Elementary that a specific child’s behavior had drastically changed.

Police discovered school staff had spoken with the victim, who admitted that she was being inappropriately touched when sleeping away from home. A forensic interview  confirmed the victim’s claims.

The Hays County Sheriff’s Office continued the investigation, and after an alleged positive verification from Ruiz’s sister-in-law, confirmed that he was the suspect.

Ruiz was booked into the Hays County Jail April 28 and was released on the same day on a $75,000 bond. A trial date has not yet been confirmed.
