A report to the campus resource officer at Sequoia High School led to the arrest of a registered sex offender, Redwood City police said Thursday.

A Sequoia student told the campus officer that a man approached her at the school and was acting strangely, asking her what grade she was in and if she had a boyfriend.

The resource officer identified Fidelino Ruiz, 26, as the suspect in the case.

Ruiz, classified as a sex offender, is not allowed on school grounds by law.

Investigation led to further identification of Ruiz as the suspect in a January sexual battery incident.
