A Tampa man was arrested Sunday and charged with sexually battering a preteen girl for more than a month, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
Daniel Joseph Gosse, 54, of 9945 Montague Street, was arrested one day after the mother of a girl under the age of 12 reported to deputies Gosse performed sexual acts on her daughter.
Authorities determined that for six weeks Gosse, who is not a family member, performed acts on the child, who they say was not randomly targeted.
Gosse was arrested at his home Sunday without incident. No bond has been set.
