HOUSTON – Harris County Sheriff’s investigators have rearrested and charged a former technology camp manager in a second case of indecency with a child, officials said Friday.

Last week investigators said they were looking for more possible victims after Anthony Tang, 38, was arrested and charged with sexual assault and indecency with a child.

Tang was first accused of assaulting a then-14-year-old boy about two years ago at Camp Katy Technology Camp located near the 400 block of West Grand Parkway South. (The camp has relocated since then.)

Investigators said activities at the camp included overnight stays by under-age participants.

Deputies said the second victim, a 15-year-old, came forward as a result of the publicity from the first case. Tang now faces two additional charges of indecency with a child, deputies said.

Tang had posted bond and was released from jail after the initial charges were filed, but he is now back in custody.

Amber Strickland, the owner of Camp Katy, released a statement last week saying she’s shocked by the allegations:

“It should be made clear that these allegations did not occur during our summer camp. A background check was performed on Mr. tang and nothing but praise was spoken about him before now,” she wrote.

Anyone with information about any sexual abuse incidents related to this case is asked to call Harris County Sheriff’s Office investigators at 713-830-3250 or Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS.

“We appreciate the invaluable assistance of the news media and the public in helping to bring victims forward in such a sensitive situation,” Sheriff Adrian Garcia said in a news release. “This investigation continues, so we still need assistance.”
