Sexual Assault Investigation Arrest – C16-83891

Recently, members of the Winnipeg Police Service Sex Crimes Unit became involved in a historic sexual assault investigation originating in April, 2009.

It was reported that a student under 16 years of age, at the time, was enrolled at a Taekwondo Academy located in the 1000 block of McPhillips Street in Winnipeg. The student’s instructor was a 50 year old male at the time.

In 2009, the instructor pursued and developed a personal relationship with the victim. In April of that year, the male instructor began touching the victim inappropriately which continued on a regular basis.

Between 2009 and 2012, the instructor’s advances increased and were sexual in nature. During this period of time, this behaviour continued frequently, approximately 2-3 times per week.

In January, 2010, the instructor drove the victim and other students to Alberta for a Taekwondo tournament. Again, the victim was sexually assaulted during this excursion.

Over time, the victim successfully dissolved the relationship prior to notifying members of the Winnipeg Police Service.

As a result of the on-going investigation, on May 4, 2016, at approximately 3:40 p.m., officers located and arrested the now 57 year old instructor, King YEUNG, in the area of the 1000 block of McPhillips Street.

He has been charged with the following offences due to his alleged involvement:

  • Sexual Assault – Child Abuse
  • Sexual Exploitation
  • Sexual Interference
  • Corrupting Morals
  • Invitation to Sexual Touching

The 57 year old male was remanded into custody.

Recently, a second victim made contact with the Winnipeg Police Service. In 1998, a student under 16 years joined the Taekwondo Academy. Over the next approximately 6 years, the victim was inappropriately touched and sexually assaulted by the same instructor.

On May 9, 2016, King YEUNG was re-arrested and charged with the following due to his alleged involvement:   

  • Sexual Assault – Child Abuse
  • Sexual Exploitation
  • Sexual Interference
  • Corrupting Morals
  • Invitation to Sexual Touching

The investigation is on-going involving members of the Winnipeg Police Service Sex Crimes Unit. Anyone with further information regarding this investigation is asked to contact investigators at 204-986-6245 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
