A sick Pizza Hut boss who locked a 16-year-old worker in the restaurant bathroom before raping her has been seized by police in Florida.
Suspect Calvin Cooke, 31, told the worker to clean the women’s toilets at 1am after the eaterie had closed.
But the burly 17-stone brute cornered the terrified teen and locked the door to perform a series of sickening sex acts on her, say police.
The truth only emerged when she told her parents after Cooke finally released her and they called police in Kissimmee on 26th August.
Under Florida law, the age of consent for sex is 18 and anyone aged over 24 having sex with someone aged 16 or 17 is automatically guilty of rape.
Osceola County Sheriff Marcos Lopez said the teen felt she had been forced to have sex because she was afraid of what Cooke would do if she refused.
Lopez said Cooke had been sending his victim sexually explicit images on Snapchat despite knowing she is underage.
Cooke later admitted to the allegations while speaking to investigators. He has since been fired from Pizza Hut.
Sheriff Lopez said: “This suspect … deserves to be put on blast, and people need to know about what he did.
“He needs to be exposed for the type of person he is, and it’s sad, but unfortunately, they live amongst us.”
Lopez said Cooke simply “didn’t care” about the girl’s age or her position, adding she will likely be “scarred for life”.
The sheriff continued: “The reason we put him on blast and put his picture out there is because imagine this is your friend and your daughters or this is your neighbour.
“You want to know who this guy is. These are the type of people we want to keep off the streets to make sure we keep the kids safe.”
Cooke was charged with sexual battery of a minor, transmitting harmful information to a minor, unlawful use of a two-way communication device and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
He has been sent to Osceola County Jail with bail set at USD 33,000 (GBP 26,035) awaiting trial.
