Man Allegedly Used MySpace To Assault Woman


A 24-year-old Florida man has been taken into custody after allegedly forcing a 21-year-old woman he met on MySpace into engaging in sexual activity with him.

Jeremy Sherrill, of Greenacres, faces charges of sexual assault, sexual battery and false imprisonment following his arrest yesterday.

Police say Sherrill used the fake name "Joaquin" to meet the woman for an interview after offering her a job that paid $18.00 dollars per hour.

According to WPBF:

"Investigators said Sherrill asked to meet the victim for a job interview late in the evening of Jan. 11 at a gas station near Military Trail and Forest Hill Boulevard. When the two met, they got into Sherrill's car and he drove her to another location, where he forced her to perform oral sex on him."
Sherrill reportedly had also lured a second woman through MySpace, but she quickly got out of his car and ran away.

Detectives fear there could be other victims out there.

If you have any information on this case you are asked to call Detective Lowell King at (561) 688-4018 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS (8477).
