TAMPA, Fla. (TND) — A young woman looks younger than her real age, at least to one boy who police say became a victim of her lewd or lascivious behavior.

Tampa police said they acted on tips to detectives and arrested Alyssa Zinger.

They said their investigation found “Zinger made contact with the victim by posing as a home-schooled student online. She communicated with the victim primarily through an online social media platform.”

Then, at some point or points, the 22-year-old woman met the boy in person.

She’s charged with two counts lewd or lascivious battery and five counts of lewd or lascivious molestation with a victim, 12-15.

Zinger’s bail was set at $7,500 for each of those seven charges and she was released after about seven hours.

Police say they think the boy wasn’t alone, and there are other victims. Anyone with information is encouraged to call police at 813-231-6130.
