Kung-Fu teacher pleads guilty to felony sexual battery

Submitted By Fremont PD

In late 2009, the Fremont Police Department investigated two molestation cases involving suspect Wenyuan Sun (a 49 year old Kung-Fu instructor). Two juvenile female victims alleged that Sun molested them while they were taking Kung-Fu classes at Sun's Kung-Fu school the "O-Mei Kung Fu Academy" (located at 39171 Farwell Drive in Fremont).

Based upon the evidence warrants were secured for Sun's arrest. Sun become aware of the police investigation and fled the country. Sun was placed on the Fremont Police Department's Most Wanted website in early 2010.

In September 2011, Sun was arrested at an airport in Houston, TX. The arrest was a result of a joint operation with the U.S. Marshall's Service, U.S. Customs, and the Fremont Police Department Crimes Against Persons Unit.

On August 1, 2012, Sun pled guilty to two counts of felony sexual battery (one count for each victim). Sun has remained in custody since the time of his arrest in Texas. Sun will be sentenced later in the month.

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to contact the Fremont Police Department's Investigative Unit at (510) 790-6900 or Detective Michael Gebhardt at (510) 790-6954.
