Man arrested for lewdly rubbing girl on bus

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- A man was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of lewdly rubbing a 5-year-old girl seated next to him on a bus.

Ruben De Los Rios, 55, is accused of rubbing the girl's arm and inner thigh.

The girl was riding a Golden Empire Transit District bus with her parents, who were seated behind her. After being alerted of De Los Rios' actions, the girl's father confronted De Los Rios, who police said has no connection to the family.

De Los Rios was arrested soon after the incident when the bus returned to the GET terminal in downtown Bakersfield. He was booked into Kern County Jail on suspicion of committing lewd acts with a child under 14.
