Deputies: Thonotosassa man sexually battered girl, 12, in trailer
A Thonotosassa man has been charged after Hillsborough County deputies say he sexually battered a 12-year-old girl in his trailer. Deputies say the girl was selling juice boxes in a neighborhood Monday afternoon while her father was pressure-washing inside the trailer park. Deputies say Jose Luis Olquin-Sanchez, 46, answered the door and told the girl he had more juice boxes she could sell and invited her into the trailer. Once inside, Olquin-Sanchez placed juice boxes on top of the ones the girl had in the box, deputies say.Olquin-Sanchez then grabbed her arms and did not allow her to leave, deputies say. He then sexually battered her as she screamed and tried to escape. Olquin-Sanchez got up a short time later and threw money into the girl’s box, deputies say. She ran home and told her mother what had occurred. Olquin-Sanchez was charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation, false imprisonment, and sexual battery.
