SAUSALITO — A martial arts instructor at a city-owned facility is facing sex crime charges. The suspect was arrested and booked at Marin County Jail—held in custody in lieu of $100,000 bond.

In a prepared statement Sausalito police said. “A Tae Kwon Do instructor was arrested after he admitted to criminal sexual activity with a student, a 10-year-old girl.” The suspect is a contractor hired by the City of Sausalito to teach Tae Kwon Do.

Joshua T. Boyes, 35, of Richmond, was arrested 11:15 a.m. on March 2 at Sausalito police headquarters. Boyce was placed under arrest after he was questioned about inappropriate sexual activity with the child victim.

Boyd faces two felony charges. One charge accuses him of committing a lewd/lascivious act with a child under 14, PC 288(A). The second charge alleges oral copulation with a person under 14, PC 287(C)(1).

The victim told her mother what happened to her at a community facility on the 400 block of Litho Street. This incident took place on March 1. Her mother contacted police and reported it.

The Sausalito Police Department and Marin County Sheriff’s Office collaborated to investigate the allegations. Boyes who works at a grocery store, when not teaching martial arts, was taken into custody in this ongoing inquiry.

“We are concerned there could be more victims,” said Sausalito Police Chief Stacie Gregory in a prepared statement. Anyone with information can contact the Sausalito Police Department at 415-289-4170.
