- Griffin police have arrested a martial arts instructor after being accused of molesting and enticing a child for indecent purposes during a summer karate camp, according to a police report from the Griffin Police Department.

According to Griffin Police Department Chief Mike Yates, Daniel George, 50, was arrested and charged with child molestation after a mom told police that her 7-year-old daughter told her that George touched her "private area" during a summer camp, according to the police report.

The report says the mom was riding in the car with her daughter when she told her mother “that she guessed it was okay to tell (mother) that Mr. Dan (her karate instructor) had touched her private area.”

The report states the mother asked her daughter how she was touched and the child said, “Mr. Dan put his hand on her stomach and then went inside her pants.”

According to the police report, the mother alleged her daughter said she “was told by Mr. Dan that she was not allowed to tell her mom or anything about him touching her and he made her promise. (The girl) also said that when Mr. Dan asked her to promise that she had her fingers crossed behind her back, so she felt it was okay to tell her mom what she said.”

The mother also alleged her daughter reported that while other children were eating a snack at the karate studio, George would take her in the girls’ locker room where he “tries to fix her pants because they are too tight,” and that she has a “secret room in the studio where she goes and plays on a computer that only she has access to with Mr. Dan’s permission.”

George posted bond on August 2, and the bond was set at $44,812.00, according to officials.
