Man Sought In Fort Tryon Park Attack Arrested In New Jersey
Oscar Ruiz, 35, was arrested over the weekend in Englewood after police received a tip from a source, CBS 2’s Christine Sloan reported.
Ruiz is accused of attacking Mary Jane Jarman, 33, as she pushed her 8-month-old son in a jogging stroller in Fort Tryon Park on Sept. 27.
“A man climbed over the railing with a broken bottle and said come here, come here and I started yelling, screaming, trying to draw as much attention as I could to myself,” Jarman told CBS 2 after the attack.
Jarman fought the alleged assailant off with a bike pump she had in the stroller.
“He got me in a bear hug at one point, down on the ground and I just kept hitting and hitting him and he took off,” Jarman said.
Jarman and her son were not injured in the attack.
