LAND O'LAKES — Deputies arrested a 54-year-old man Wednesday on accusations that he molested three young girls, all under the age of 12.
On several different occasions, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office report said, Andrea Prince Walker fondled the girls, using threats to get them to comply and remain quiet.
After sexually touching an 11-year-old girl, the report said, Walker threatened to kill her if she told anyone. Authorities say he also fondled a 9-year-old and a 12-year-old, forcing the younger child to perform a sex act on him. Deputies later discovered that the 9-year-old had written about the incident in her journal.
Walker, of 3315 Thistledown Lane in Land O'Lakes, has been charged with capital sexual battery on a victim under 12 and two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation on a victim under 12. He is being held at Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
