Spring Hill man accused of molesting 2 girls

SPRING HILL — Hernando County authorities have accused a 67-year-old man of sexually molesting two girls on several occasions.

Peter John Prahasky of Spring Hill fondled a 9-year-old girl on three occasions between August 2006 and June 2010, according to a Hernando County Sheriff's Office report.

Prahasky also engaged in sexual activity with a second girl, a teenager, several times in recent years, the report states.

The girls told a Pasco County deputy in November that the molestation occurred at Prahasky's.

Hernando County deputies interviewed the girls in December.

The younger girl confirmed the details of her statement to the Pasco deputy.

The other girl told investigators the molestation took place several times, starting when she was 13 and continuing through age 16.

Prahasky was arrested Wednesday on charges of sexual battery and lewd and lascivious acts on a child. He was held in lieu of $105,000 bail.
