Meng "Ricky" Wong, 36, a kung fu instructor for more than a decade at Tat Wong Kung Fu Academy in Redwood City, was arrested last month on charges of lewd acts with a child after two young girls came forward with stories that Wong had fondled them. He's set to appear in court on April 19 for his arraignment, and he could face a prison sentence of fifteen years to life. Because he's been teaching kung fu for so long, police are seeking further reports of inappropriate behavior from parents of girls who may have taken Wong's classes.
The two alleged victims are aged 9 and 11, and police are asking that any girls aged 8 to 12 who have been in contact with Wong and experienced any sort of badness to come forward. Wong is currently free on $100,000 bail.
Anyone with further information to add to the case should contact San Mateo police detective Alex Rizzato at (650) 522-7669.
