Reginald Cruz is accused of tricking women and girls into letting him touching their feet.

DUNDEE, Fla. -

A Florida man tricked women and children into letting him touch their feet by posing as a Boy Scout trying to earn his community service badge and a college student conducting medical research, among other tales, authorities said.

Polk County Sheriff's Office deputies said Reginald Cruz satisfied his foot fetish by approaching hundreds of females ranging in age from 10 to 32 years old.

Cruz was arrested Wednesday on various charges, including lewd and lascivious conduct on a person less than 18.

Detectives said Cruz approached a 10-year-old girl as recently as January, asking to touch her toes.

Among the stories Cruz concocted, detectives said, was that he was a Boy Scout trying to earn his community service badge. Another story he gave was that he was a college student conducting medical research to gain their "respect," detectives said.

Cruz claimed he has been asking women to touch their feet since he was 6 years old, according to a news release. Cruz told detectives that after massaging these people's feet, he would determine if they trusted him enough to begin kissing their feet or sucking their toes, the release stated.

Detectives said there could be more victims.
