Woman, 23, ‘posed as 14-year-old schoolgirl to have sex with teenage boy 30 times’


A woman accused of posing as a schoolgirl to lure in underage boys as young as 12 has ended up back in court as more victims come forward.


Alyssa Ann Zinger of Tampa, Florida, was nabbed after she allegedly pretended to be a 14-year-old girl while messaging young boys on Snapchat. The 23-year-old was arrested on November 24, 2023, on two counts of lewd and lascivious battery, and five counts of lewd or lascivious molestation on a victim, who was 12 to 15 years old.


Zinger, who was really 22 at the time of her arrest, told her alleged victims she was home-schooled while speaking to them online.

When police picked up Zinger they said they believed there could be more victims.


Now she has been arrested for a second time and hit with more charges as four more youngsters have come forward claiming Zinger targeted them.


During the initial investigations, one teenage boy claimed his alleged relationship with her went from May to September 2023, and the pair had sex at least 30 times at his home.


He also claimed Zinger told him she had been sleeping with other students aged between 12 and 15.


Explicit pictures and videos were also sent out to students by Zinger, cops claim.


She was caught when she and a student were caught allegedly shoplifting at a department store and investigators were unable to match her name with the date of birth she gave.


She was released from Orient Road Jail on November 24, and paid a $7,500 bond on each second-degree felony charge, records show.

According to search warrants, Zinger and one boy allegedly met over Snapchat at the end of May 2023. Until their breakup in September, the alleged victim believed she was 14 years old.


Police were alerted to the relationship in October.


Chief Lee Bercaw of the Tampa Police Department said: “It is disturbing and unsettling to see an adult take advantage of a child and prey on them.


“Anyone who may have been a victim of Zinger’s, we encourage you to come forward. The Tampa Police Department will support you and ensure a predator like Zinger doesn’t cause you or others additional harm.”


A spokesperson for Hillsborough County Schools said the suspect never posed as a student at any of their campuses.


“This did not happen at our school. However, we are glad that a student felt safe enough to come to an adult on campus alerting them about this individual,” district spokesperson Tanya Arja said.


“Our staff immediately contacted law enforcement so they could begin an investigation.”


In July, the accused and victim were allegedly caught shoplifting from Nordstrom at International Plaza and Bay Street.


Zinger identified herself to an officer using her actual name but said she was born in 2009.


However, when the cop couldn’t find information on her with the 2009 date, Alyssa Ann Zinger, who was born in 2001, was found instead.


Zinger claimed she had a half-sister of the same name.


But once the relationship was exposed, supervisors at a Tampa Publix where Zinger worked confirmed that she was a legal adult.
