Bold Pervert Groped Women on Rickenbacker Causeway

Meet Josue Pierre, the Rickenbacker Causeway Creeper. The 25-year-old has a skeevy way of trying to pick up women he doesn't know; groping the most intimate parts of their bodies. Four ladies jogging the William Powell Bridge along the causeway experienced Pierre's personal-space-invading mitts the morning of Aug. 13.

"If I had let him get away with it, he'd still be out there," says Maria, one of Pierre's victims who asked that her last name not be used. "That guy violated me."

According to a Miami Police arrest report, Pierre snuck up on his first victim from behind and rubbed his hands on her butt cheeks. She turned around and pushed him away. He went in the opposite direction and came upon his second victim, walking alongside her.

Pierre grabbed her left butt cheek. The startled woman turned to look at Pierre, who laughed and continued on his stroll. A few minutes later, he crossed paths with his third victim, rubbing his hand up and down her thigh. She shoved him and he kept on trucking.

Shortly after, Pierre saw Maria walking toward him and went for her groin. "He grabbed my vagina," she says. "I mean a full grip. I was stunned."

As she dialed 911 on her cellphone, Maria followed Pierre. "It took about 30 minutes for the officer to show up," Maria says. "But I was mad as hell. I wasn't going to lose sight of him."

When Ofcr. Joaquin Polanco had Pierre in custody, his other victims returned and provided their statements to the cop. "They had called 911 too, but no one had bothered to respond until I started chasing him," Maria says. "This is why people don't report crimes. They get discouraged."

According to his arrest report, Pierre allegedly told another officer that grabbing women was his "way of picking them up." He's been locked up in county jail since, but Maria fears he won't get any serious time and he'll be back on the Rickenbacker soon. Polanco only charged Pierre with misdemeanor battery. His arraignment hearing is Sept. 25.

Maria spoke to the case prosecutor who allegedly told her that he couldn't charge Pierre with sexual battery because he didn't penetrate her or the other women.

"That's why I'm mad," she says. "No one has the right to touch me or grab me."

Did they have a "rape whistle"? He should have been shot by one of the women.

This is why so many people take the law into their own hands. Our justice system sucks.  If this pervert ever did this to me I would stab him in the penis!

If you live in a cesspool you will not get any justice.

There's also a guy who masturbates at the base of the bridge behind the palm trees.  He looks up at you as you are running over him on the Rickenbacher.

30 minutes is about normal (often it is an hour at peak time when shootings, ect are going on. That's actually not bad as a wait time. Crimes don't get reported because Americans have zero patience often to file a report. This is clearly battery: MISDEMEANOR is it should plainly be based on these facts. Interestingly, in many parts of Europe this could happen and the cops will laugh. Be happy that you have rights here. Sex batt is a big time felony that lands a person in prison for years (say 15 max). This guy is a COMPLETE jackass, but sorry, this is misdemeanor battery. People should stop complaining about the police AND the laws that protect them - Criminal law expert. Why not build more and more jails and charge every scumbag like this with a felony. Then we can have even more prisons! YAY!!!!!

30 minutes for the officer to show up?! Is this another case of 'confusion' as to which part of the Causeway fall under County vs. City jurisdiction? This same confusion has led to multiple delays in the past regarding car crashes on the Causeway....it should be investigated.

@jdomar I have no problem using my tax dollars to pay for jails to keep guys like this locked up forever

@Throwawaykey @jdomar PS - your personal tax dollars - the puny amount you put in, have no bearing on policy shifts. Are you the Koch brothers or someone who pays 5k in taxes and talks a bunch of smack about "your tax pennies." Do you understand government debt, and why "throwawaykey" is a retarded name? Should we lock you up permanently for smoking pot? Yeah this guy sucks, but maybe you belong in a Siberian work camp to appreciate our right to be defended in court here.
