SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Police say a South Texas man has been charged with molesting two boys at a park after promising to teach them self-defense methods.

David Isaiah Soto of San Antonio was being held Thursday on two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

San Antonio police on Wednesday arrested the 20-year-old Soto, who’s denied the allegations in the case involving boys ages 11 and 12. Bexar (bayr) County magistrate records didn’t immediately list a bond amount.

Sgt. Jesse Salame (SAHL’-uh-may) says the boys told investigators that Soto in April began teaching them self-defense techniques at a park, then forced them to perform sex acts on him. Salame says the suspect threatened to hurt the children or their families if they reported the abuse.

One boy told a relative, who contacted police.
