Fort Lauderdale police accuse Riverview man of sexual battery 11 years ago

TAMPA — Fort Lauderdale police are seeking the public's help in the case of a Riverview man charged with sexual battery on a child.

Hillsborough County deputies arrested Wilton Lloyd Johnson, 44, at his Riverview home May 4.

Johnson sexually battered a girl younger than 12 at least twice in June 2000, according to Fort Lauderdale police. He was a resident there at the time, said Fort Lauderdale police Detective Travis Mandell.

The victim, who is still a minor, reported the incidents more than a decade afterward, on April 8. Johnson was taken to the Broward County jail May 12 and was being held without bail.

Mandell said the investigation is ongoing. Any local residents with information about the suspect can contact the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200.
