The video posted on Facebook by Gerardo Cruz that has had more than 1 million views paints the picture of Umaña allegedly using his cellular phone to video up a woman’s skirt as she walked the boulevard in downtown San Jose. When Cruz confronted Umaña, as show on the video, he begins to walk rapidly, attempting to flee the scene on foot, until he gets into a taxi.

“I don’t have to hide from anyone, I made a mistake and as a human, I can get over this. My sincere expression of forgiveness, because I screwed up”, Umaña said to the Telenoticias (channe 7) news camera.

Umaña denies doing anything wrong or anything to do with the attack on Cruz, who was stabbed two days after the Facebook post and continues in a coma at the Hospital Calderon Guardia.
