According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office, a man hunt for Ruth was initiated last month after he punched a female cashier in the face after he tried to purchase a $1.41 Swisher Sweet cigar with a single dollar bill that he had in his pocket.
Investigators say Ruth punched 23-year-old Yadira Lara directly between the eyes with a closed fist. Ruth then fled the scene with the cigar and remained on the loose until he was identified and tracked down by deputies last Wednesday.
The victim reportedly sustained serious injury to her left eye and has been told that the damage is permanent and may lead to blindness in that eye.
Ruth was booked into jail and charged with robbery and assault. His bail has been set at $100,000.
