Police: Las Cruces man arrested after girl tells therapist of alleged fondling

LAS CRUCES - A young girl revealed to her mental-health therapist that man who cared for her allegedly fondled her, Las Cruces police said

The girl was 5 or 6 when 40-year-old Ramiro Ruiz allegedly touched her inappropriately in 2014 at his Las Cruces home.

Ruiz, who lives in the  2300 block of Solar Way, was charged with two counts of criminal sexual contact of a child.
 
The allegations surfaced earlier this month when the young girl disclosed the inappropriate contact to a mental health therapist.
