Former karate school employee accused of child sex crime in Henrico

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A shocking story out of Henrico, where a former karate school employee is behind bars, accused of exposing himself to a 6-year-old girl.

19-year-old Trevor Campbell, of Ashland, was arrested late Friday.

Police said Campbell not only showed the little girl his genitals, but had her touch him. His former employer is devastated and shared the news with other parents.

For three months, Campbell worked at American Colleges Of Karate in the Tuckahoe Village Shopping center on Patterson Avenue.

During a class on Thursday, Henrico police say Campbell took a 6-year-old girl into the bathroom, exposed himself, and had the child touch his privates. 24 hours later, Campbell was in jail. He's charged with taking indecent liberties with a minor and aggravated sexual battery.

According to an attorney for the karate school: the owners did a background check on Campbell before he was hired and it came out clean and when the parents came forward about what happened he was fired immediately.

On this night, the karate school owner declined an on camera interview.

But Master Rick told me he and his wife run a great program and love all the kids who participate in the classes.

Their attorney said the owner's wife has known Campbell all his life and she had no indication there was anything for her to worry about.

Campbell is being held without bond in the Henrico county jail. His arraignment is scheduled for Monday.
