Posted at 6:31 PM, Feb 05, 2016

A man trusted with teaching Tae Kwon Do to children has been arrested for inappropriately touching two girls.

Andrew Jin Kim, 23, worked for Oh’s Tae Kwon Do, 2520 Seminole Blvd in Seminole. He allegedly touched the two little girls, ages 6 and 7, inappropriately while they were undressed and told them not to tell anyone.

The investigation began with one of the victims who told her mom that Kim molested her.

Pinellas County Sheriff Deputies discovered a second victim. The incidents occurred in 2014 and 2015.

Detectives interviewed Kim and, according to the Sheriff’s Office, admitted to the allegations.

Kim was arrested on two counts of Lewd and Lascivious Molestation.

Investigators say Kim had access to other children and there may be other victims.

ABC Action News reached out to Oh’s Tae Kwon Do. We have not heard back.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation or any other potential victims are asked to please contact the Detective M. Kolenda with the Crimes Against Children's Unit at (727) 582-6200.
