Man arrested for allegedly groping young boys around hotel pool

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Harbor Police say they arrested a 66-year-old Point Loma man in connection with a most disturbing incident.

Police say Douglas Madruga groped several young boys around the pool at the Sheraton Hotel on Harbor Island.

The incidents allegedly happened on July 3rd at around 7pm.

Madruga, officers say, is a convicted sex offender. Police say in one of the incidents Madruga grabbed a little boy’s private parts.

Police say witnesses reported that Madruga had been hanging around the pool for much of the day.

But here’s the question: Police say he was not a guest at the hotel so how did he gain access to the pool? It turns out he somehow got his hands on a guest pass.

Madruga faces several charges including two felonies.
