Canadian dentist arrested for exposing himself to girls at Lake Worth schools

A Canadian dentist is under arrest after deputies say he exposed himself to female students in Lake Worth-area schools.

57-year-old Ron Rohringer, of Toronto, was arrested Thursday in Miami for indecent exposure and trespassing on school property.

According to Palm Beach County Sheriff's officials, back in February of 2016, two female students reported to school police that a man driving a SUV stopped them while on school property and he asked for directions to ‘Walgreens’. Officials said as the juveniles attempted to give him directions, they observed the male masturbate in front of them.

Another similar incident occurred this year in February when a man, later identified as Ron Rohringer, stopped two female students on school property asking for directions and started masturbating in front of them, according to PBSO officials.

A spokeswoman for PBSO says photo lineups were created and presented to the victim’s with positive identification was made in both cases.

On March 2nd, an arrest warrant was issued for Rohringer for three counts of ‘Indecent Exposure’ and two counts of ‘Trespass on School Property’.

Rohringer was located in Miami Thursday and taken into custody without incident, officials said.

Rohringer provided a full confession to these incidents and was remanded to Miami-Dade County Jail awaiting extradition back to Palm Beach County Jail, a spokeswoman said.

Detectives believe that there could be additional victims.
