During a cadet camp at the University of Hartford last year, the teen said she noticed Ruscoe paying attention to two Trumbull girls and told him that people were talking about him flirting with one of the teens in an effort to get him to stop flirting, police documents state.
Months later, her drill instructor, identified as Ruscoe, started sending inappropriate and flirty messages, the girl told police.
