Alyssa Ann Zinger, 23, of Tampa, Florida, allegedly posed as a 14-year-old home-schooled girl to prey on high school students and engage in sexual acts with younger boys.

A 23-year-old Florida woman accused of impersonating a 14-year-old girl to sexually abuse a teenager has been hit with more charges as victims continue to come forward.

Alyssa Ann Zinger, of Tampa, Florida, allegedly posed as a 14-year-old home-schooled girl to prey on high school students and engage in sexual acts with younger boys.

The 23-year-old was arrested in November for engaging in more than 30 sexual acts with at least one student as young as 12 at Wilson High School.

Zinger was arrested on allegations that she posed as a home-schooled teenager to contact the victim on Snapchat, before allegedly engaging in a sexual relationship with him.

She was arrested for a second time Thursday and charged with additional sex crime charges after four more victims said they were allegedly attacked by Zinger.

According to the victims, the 23-year-old allegedly created a false persona of a 14-year-old home-schooled student.

Authorities said Zinger had sex with the first victim multiple times and allegedly sent a pornographic video to several children via Snapchat.

She has been charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious battery and five counts of lewd or lascivious sexual abuse against a victim who is between 12 and 15 years old. The age of consent in Florida is 18 years old.

Court records indicate that Zinger waived her right to be prosecuted and pleaded not guilty to the charges.

She was released from the Orient Road jail on Nov. 24, the day after her arrest, and posted $7,500 bail for each second-degree felony count, records show.

According to search warrants, Zinger and the victim allegedly met over Snapchat in late May 2023. Until their breakup in September, the victim believed she was 14 years old.

Police were alerted to the relationship in October.

Once officers interviewed the victim, it was revealed that the suspect allegedly engaged in sexual activity with him approximately 30 times and told him that she sexually abused other boys between the ages of 13 and 15 in the past.

Chief Lee Bercaw of the Tampa Police Department said, “It is disturbing and disturbing to see an adult take advantage of and take advantage of a child.”

‘Anyone who has been a victim of Zinger, we encourage you to come forward. The Tampa Police Department will stand by you and make sure that a predator like Zinger does not cause additional harm to you or others.

A Hillsborough County Schools spokesperson said the suspect never posed as a student on any of its campuses. At this time, the district is not directly involved in the investigation.

Court records indicate Zinger waived her right to be prosecuted and pleaded not guilty to the charges in November.

Chief Lee Bercaw of the Tampa Police Department said, “It is disturbing and disturbing to see an adult take advantage of and take advantage of a child.”

‘This didn’t happen at our school. However, we are glad that a student felt safe enough to go to an adult on campus to alert them about this individual,” said district spokesperson Tanya Arja. “Our staff immediately contacted police to that they could start an investigation.”

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

She identified herself to an officer using her real name, but said she was born in 2009. The officer couldn’t find information about her with the 2009 birth date she provided, but did find one for Alyssa Ann Zinger, who was born in 2001.

He told the officer he had a half-sister of the same name. But after the relationship was revealed, employers at a Tampa Publix where Zinger worked also confirmed that she was an adult.
