Redwood City Tae Kwon Do Instructor Arrested On Child Molestation Charge
REDWOOD CITY (CBS SF) — Police were asking for the public’s help in learning more about a Tae Kwon Do instructor at a Redwood City academy who was arrested on suspicion of child molestation late last year, Redwood City police said Wednesday.
Ralph “Eugene” Todd, 31, of Menlo Park, was taken into custody on Dec. 19 for allegedly performing lewd and lascivious acts on a child, police said.
Todd had taught at the Kim’s Tae Kwon Do Academy in Woodside Plaza for 12 years, according to police.
Detectives are attempting to gain more information to determine if there are additional victims or witnesses.
Police Lt. Sean Hart said investigators have spoken with all of current students at the academy, but are looking into whether there are past students who may have been abused.
Todd was out of custody on bail, Hart said.
Anyone with information regarding Todd has been asked to contact Redwood City police Detective Megan Boyajian at (650) 780-7138.
