HOUSTON – Police in Thailand have arrested a Houston fitness instructor who was charged and wanted in the sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl.
Houston police were looking for Forrest Wayne, 41, who they say had a sexual relationship with the victim from July to October. He was charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child.
Investigators said Wayne was in a health food store in Thailand when an employee became suspicious of him. That’s when the employee entered his information into an Internet search engine and found he was wanted in the sexual assault of a juvenile.
Wayne met the victim while he was working as a personal trainer at the Westside Tennis and Fitness club. Police said Wayne would take the girl to a motel along the 9500 block of the Katy Freeway where the two would have sex. KHOU 11 News first reported the story last week.
The health food store employee called Thailand police and Wayne was taken into custody.
Houston police said it is unclear when Wayne will be extradited back to Houston.
