According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Vongkoth Lay Vorasan of Lithia, was taken into custody Friday night at work – a Checkers restaurant located at 603 Martin Luther King Boulevard in Seffner.
Investigators say a female employee claims Vorasan followed her into the restroom on March 1 and sexually assaulted her, until someone interrupted by knocking on the door.
The following day, the same alleged victim told detectives Vorasan sexually assaulted her a second time in the restaurant. On this occasion, the victim reportedly used her cell phone to record the alleged attack and could be heard telling the suspect “No.”
After Vorasan’s arrest, detectives say he admitted to sexually assaulting the victim. He has been booked into the Hillsborough County Jail with $100,000 bond on two charges of sexual battery.
