Previous News Release (16-023):
Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office detectives are asking for the public's assistance in identifying the individual in the surveillance photo. On January 17, 2016, at approximately 12:30 an unknown white male entered a model home and engaged the sales person in a conversation about purchasing a home. The female sales person was working alone and became aware of the subject acting suspiciously during the conversation (he was invading her personal space and giving her compliments, following closing as they walked around). After the subject left, the sales person learned that the same subject had been in another model home in Ayersworth Glen in Riverview on January 11, 2016 at 6:05 pm. The female sale agent was also working alone at that location and noted similar suspicious actions (invading personal space, compliments and at one point, the sales agent shook hands with the subject and the subject pulled her close to him and complimented her). In one of the incidents, as the sales agent was sitting behind her desk and showing maps of homes to the subject as he stood in front of her desk, the subject leaned over the desk and rubbed his groin area over the agents hands.
