A 36-year-old man has been arrested after the parents of a 15-year-old girl from Florida discovered that he had been secretly living in their daughter’s closet for over a month!
Jonathan Rossmoine from Louisiana met the teen online through VRCHAT in 2018. He traveled to Florida to have sex with the girl, who described him as her boyfriend.
According to reports, he moved into the child’s bedroom where he would hide in the closet and come out when her parents left the house.
Rossmoine was arrested and charged with multiple sex crimes after the girl’s parents discovered that he had been hiding in the girl’s bedroom for at least five weeks.
Police said that he first made contact with the girl two years ago when she was only 13. He then drove from Louisiana to Florida to have sex with her on many different occasions.
He then started living in the child’s bedroom from August 19.
Hernando County Sheriff’s Office Detective Tom Cameron said: “He and the young lady came up with the idea that he could just stay in her room if he hid in the closet whenever the parents came in.
“They kept the bedroom door closed and locked and whenever someone came to the door it gave them an opportunity to run and hide in the closet and open up the door to where maybe she was changing or something.”
Five weeks later, the girl’s parents heard noises coming from the bedroom and they were shocked to see Rossmoine.
Child psychologist Dr. Wendy Rice said the incident serve as a warning to parents about the dangers of the online world, Fox 13 reported.
“Kids can be doing things under our noses and in your house that you might not be aware of that could shock you,” Rice said.
“Get the electronics out of the bedroom. That is key. None of us really need to be sleeping with our phones next to our beds and least of all teens.”
