Authorities are asking anyone who may have been victimized by a Colorado Springs taekwondo instructor wanted for sexual assault to come forward.

Glenn Allan Lainfiesta, 44, was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust and criminal attempt to commit sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust, both felonies, and unlawful sexual contact, a misdemeanor, according to the El Paso County Sheriff's Office. The investigation into Lainfiesta began in early April.

The Sheriff's Office asked for information about Lainfiesta's whereabouts on Tuesday afternoon, but within an hour, he had turned himself in.

Lainfiesta has worked for about two and a half years as a sparring coach at the Academy of Life and Leadership Taekwondo in Chapel Hills Mall, 1710 Briargate Blvd., according to the Sheriff's Office.

During that time, it is unknown how many juvenile students he instructed.

Lainfiesta's roles at the Academy of Life and Leadership Taekwondo included sparring team coach and Little Dragons program director, according to its website. The Little Dragons program is for kids aged 3 to 7.

Anyone who has been victimized by Lainfiesta is asked to contact Detective Patrick Gallagher at 520-7596 or patrickgallagher@elpasoco.com.
