Seffner Checkers manager charged with sexual battery against employee

SEFFNER — Sheriff's deputies charged a Checkers restaurant manager with sexual battery Friday night after they say he attacked an employee twice.

On March 1, Vongkoth Vorasane, general manager of the Checkers located at 603 Martin Luther King Blvd. in Seffner, followed a female employee into the bathroom and sexually assaulted her, Hillsborough County Sheriff's spokesman Larry McKinnon said.

Vorasane, 30, stopped the attack when a knock at the door interrupted him, McKinnon said.

The following day, Vorasane followed the employee into the bathroom again, sexually assaulting her a second time, McKinnon said. The employee used her cell phone to record the attack and could be heard telling Vorasane "no" while he threatened her, according to McKinnon.

The employee fled the scene and contacted the authorities. Deputies arrested Vorasane at work and charged him with two counts of sexual battery. During an interview with detectives, Vorasane admitted to sexually assaulting the employee, McKinnon said.

Vorasane, of Lithia, is being held in the Hillsborough County jail without bail.
