Florida spider man on the run from police

March 5, 2014 

Eric Ortiz

Unless he gets some quick facial reconstruction, a suspect with a spider tattoo may have a little trouble hiding from the law.

Eric Ortiz, 22, is wanted in connection with attacks on a former girlfriend, according to clickorlando.com.

The Deltona man has a large spider tattoo on his face. He's wanted on charges including kidnapping, battery and robbery, according to the report.

When asked recently about his, Ortiz he said he got it to face his fears.

“Everybody fears spiders,” Ortiz said. “That's why I got it. Just to, like, make me know, that that's what I fear, but not to fear it. You know what I'm saying?”
