The teenager’s older sister, Krissy Rosario, tells ABC Action News her younger sister, who we aren’t identifying, was walking along Dale Mabry when Venugopal allegedly stopped her to ask her for money. When she said no, he reportedly started to utter sexual phrases to her.
"It was like everyone's worst nightmare coming true," she said.
That’s when Venugopal allegedly grabbed the student and pulled her closer as he tried to kiss her.
The teen was able to push him off, and run home where she called 911.
A spokesperson for the Hillsborough County School District tells ABC Action News they were not notified of the instance, but after our request, the district was able to confirm the allegations and they are sending home a notice to parents at Leto High School.
Rosario said the man lives in the area as they see him walking frequently.
