A shift manager at Sbarro at Hamilton Place Mall has been charged with having sex with an underage employee.

Transquil Jenkins, 26, of 1015 Lee Ave., Rossville, is charged with aggravated statutory rape.

The girl's mother called police on April 17 after she said she found sexually graphic Facebook messages between her 17-year-old daughter and "TJ." Police said the message got deleted.

A week later the girl told police she had her first sex with Jenkins in December 2017 back in the office of Sbarro after they closed the door. She said they afterward had sex multiple times at multiple different locations.

Jenkins told police he did not know how old she was until her birthday in April 2017 when he heard she had turned 17.
