A man who taught gymnastics for decades has been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a child, Dallas police say. Per the report, Edouard Iarov was arrested on Friday afternoon in a joint operation by Dallas police and U.S. Marshals task force. He was booked into jail with his bail set at $200,000.

Edouard Iarov, 69, is charged with one count of continuous sexual abuse of a child younger than 14.

Per The Dallas Morning News, Iarov has worked as a gymnastics coach for over forty years. In 2012, he became the owner of a Far North Dallas gym and named it Iarov Elite Gymnastics. It is unclear whether the accusation of abuse made against him involved a student at the gym.

It is unclear whether Iarov has an attorney.

Dallas police urge anyone with information about potential victims of abuse to contact the department through Detective Dwayne Cooper at 214-275-1329. Informants can also send an email to dwayne.cooper@dallascityhall.com.

Update: As of August 17, 2022, no evidence had been uncovered to support the accusations against Iarov, and he was cleared of all charges.
