Tampa man accused of sexual battery; other victims sought
A Tampa man is accused of assaulting and sexually battering two women, and Hillsborough County sheriff's detectives say there may be other victims who haven't stepped forward. Detectives say on Nov. 21, Frankie Valintino Aguilar Jr., 51, 4114 Berkley Drive, had an argument with a woman in his home. When she tried to leave, he grabbed her by the hair and forced her into his bedroom, investigators say. According to detectives, Aguilar pounded the woman's head on the floor, punched her in the face, pointed a handgun at her and threatened to kill her. He then forced her onto the floor, stepped on her neck and restrained her in flex cuffs. Later, Aguilar cut the cuffs and forced her to perform sexual acts, detectives said. The woman suffered a broken nose during the assault.On Monday, detectives served a search warrant on Aguilar's home to search for the gun. Along with the gun, they said they found five destructive devices, cocaine and a homemade pipe. During the search, detectives said, they found several computer memory cards and video of another sexual assault. In the video, Aguilar lured another woman into his bedroom and ordered her to remove her clothing, detectives said. When the woman did not completely submit to the his demands, he became violent, forcing her onto his bed, choking her and using a stun gun on her before putting a gun to her head and threatening to kill her, detectives said. The woman was held against her will for approximately 1 1/2 hours. He told her that if she went to police, he would kill one of her family members and make her watch, detectives said. Detectives have identified the woman and charged Aguilar with that assault. They also recovered the driver's licenses of the two woman victims that have been identified and four other drivers licenses that detectives are attempting to locate. Aguilar has been charged with two counts of sexual battery, five counts of battery, two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm; two counts of false imprisonment counts; five counts of possession of destructive devices possession of a controlled substance; possession of drug paraphernalia and felony battery. Detectives think there are other victims who have not notified law enforcement. Any other victims are encouraged to contact the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200.
