Authorities in Florida have brought several child sex crime charges against a pastor who also owns and runs a kung fu training academy. According to WESH, Palm Bay police said Roberson Douge – a pastor at Apostolic Church of Christ – was taken into custody on September 21 after two of the victims he allegedly abused reported him.

The arrest affidavit stated that the 42-year-old pastor admitted to sexually abusing the two victims during a recorded phone call that he had with them. The call was recorded by police. The affidavit also stated that Douge abused his victims in the church as well as his dojo.

The accused pastor has since been charged with 10 counts of lewd and lascivious battery and 10 counts of unlawful sexual activity with minors. He is also being detained without bond. 

Police said Douge, who runs the Tiger Claw Kung Fu Academy, likely abused more victims. They’re therefore calling on anyone he may have abused to get in touch with the Special Victims Unit.
