COOPER CITY, Fla. – A Pembroke Pines man is accused of repeatedly groping women's buttocks in a Cooper City neighborhood.

Kenneth Lopez, 20, was arrested Tuesday on multiple counts of simple battery.

According to a Broward Sheriff's Office affidavit, Lopez grabbed or slapped several women on the buttocks while they were walking on Stonebridge Parkway in the Rock Creek subdivision between December and March.

In the most recent incident, Lopez apologized and told a deputy that he thought he knew the victim, the report said.

"I just thought I knew her," Lopez said, according to the report. "I only touched her a little bit."

Lopez later confessed to grabbing the posteriors of three or four women against their will, the report said.
