22-year-old Tampa woman, Alyssa Ann Zinger has been arrested for posing as a homeschooled 14-year-old to prey on middle schoolers for sex.
According to Tampa police, Ann allegedly engaged “in at least 30 sexual acts with at least one student and sending explicit videos to several more”.
Tampa Police Chief Lee Bercaw had this to say about Ann Zinger molesting underage kids while posing as a homeschooled 14-year-old.
“It is disturbing and unsettling to see an adult take advantage of a child and prey on them”.
“Anyone who may have been a victim of Zinger’s, we encourage you to come forward. The Tampa Police Department will support you and ensure a predator like Zinger doesn’t cause you or others additional harm.”
The Post reports that;
Zinger allegedly crafted her fake persona and communicated with her victims on social media platforms, mainly Snapchat, according to a search warrant obtained by the Tampa Bay Times.
Multiple victims, who attended Wilson Middle School in Tampa’s Hyde Park neighborhood, told police they believed the Zinger was their age but was homeschooled.
“There are believed to be additional victims,” Tampa police said.
The accused predator allegedly initiated a sexual relationship with one of the victims in May, which lasted through September, the warrant states.
The victim — a boy between the ages of 12 and 15 — told police that the pair had sex multiple times and that Zinger sent him explicit photos and videos.
Another said Zinger sent a video to several children through Snapchat depicting sexual intercourse.
Zinger has been charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious battery, and five counts of lascivious molestation on a victim between the ages of 12 and 15 years old. She is likely to be put away for a long time.
