A kickboxing instructor who allegedly plied his teenage pupils with drugs and sexually abused them is behind bars following an interstate manhunt.
Gordon Golding, 56, was arrested by US Marshals in Lake Tahoe, Ca. last week after fleeing Arizona in September, where he was charged with 43 counts of sex abuse, according to KNXV-TV.
Golding is reportedly accused of going to the teenage girls’ schools, giving them vape pens and marijuana, and inviting them to his house — where the alleged abuse occurred.
The suspected Phoenix pedophile also allegedly recorded at least 10 videos of him engaging in sex acts with his minor victims, the article said.
Before he escaped, Golding was released on $7,500 cash bond because he had turned himself in and agreed to wear an ankle bracelet, but he reportedly sawed off the tracking device and went on the lam.
After an investigation, Marshals found Golding riding a bike to his safe house and arrested him.
“The arrest of this dangerous sex offender was made possible by outstanding investigative work by Phoenix Police Detectives in collaboration with U.S. Marshal fugitive task forces in Arizona and Nevada,” US Marshal David Gonzales said, according to the report.
