Hcso Arrests Tampa Camp Counselor for Assaulting 9-year-old Child

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office reported on Friday that an 18-year-old camp counselor had been arrested for the nearly two-year-old incident of child molestation.

In June and August of 2022, deputies claim that 16-year-old Angelo Lombay went to the Code Ninjas camp at 11909 Sheldon Road and touched a 9-year-old victim inappropriately.

He also made an attempt to sexually abuse the victim. The camp has closed, according to HCSO.

According to officials, Lombay acknowledged having intercourse.

“As a father, I am horrified and cannot imagine the anguish this family must be enduring after discovering such vile behavior inflicted upon their young child,” Sheriff Chad Chronister stated. “Our detectives are diligently working to ensure the safety of all children in our community and will continue in their commitment to stand against those who prey on our most vulnerable.”
