    On May 23, 2013 at 10:32 a.m. the victim called 9-1-1 and indicated that while out jogging on Nature’s Way in Brandon with her female friend, an unknown male jumped out from the bushes and grabbed her by the arm.

    The victim and her friend had seen the suspect’s vehicle ride by several times and thought it was suspicious. They continued jogging and then noticed the empty vehicle parked. The suspect then jumped out of the bushes and grabbed the victim by the arm. The victim screamed and was able to get out of the suspects grip, the male who was described as possibly mentally challenged, fled a short distance and got into a white pick up truck and drove away. The truck was described to have a “Buc’s” screen logo in the rear window.

    Deputies were able to identity the suspect as Frank Emmanuel Zuniga and took him into custody at approximately 3:30 p.m.

    Zuniga is possibly a suspect in a second incident that occurred on May 11, 2013 where a female was also jogging on Nature’s Way and he grabbed her buttocks over her shorts.

    Deputies are asking that if there are other individuals that have had any encounter with Zuniga, contact the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at 247-8200.
