A Missouri man who worked as a volunteer at a gymnastics center has been accused of touching three of his former young female students in a sexual manner.

David Schneider, a father and former volunteer sports coach for children, held the position of a gymnastics coach at the Kids in Motion gym between 2011 and 2014. Three of the girls he instructed while working there have reported incidents where Schneider allegedly touched them in an inappropriate way while they were stretching and doing the splits. The girls were age 7 or 8 at the time of the alleged assaults.

On January 9, one of the victims contacted authorities and told them that during a move that Schneider called “oversplits” his hand slipped under her shorts and between her legs while he was assisting her. She said she decided to come forward after she currently began feeling that the way she was touched did not seem as if it was proper.

On Christmas day, a high school soccer coach was placed under arrest for suspicion of human trafficking two teenage girls when he was found in the company of the young women after one of them called the authorities for help.

At nearly 3am on Monday, 911 received a call from a 17-year-old girl who reported that she was hiding from a man in a nearby vehicle who was waiting for her. She claimed that the man, identified as 34-year-old Elan Seagraves, had sexually assaulted her and forced her into prostitution.

The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department dispatched deputies to the scene where they located the girl in the yard, and they found Seagraves parked in a car nearby. They discovered a second teenage girl, also 17, sitting in the vehicle with Seagraves. Authorities posit they are both victims of human trafficking.

WKU’s director of media relations Zach Greenwell reported that assistant men’s basketball coach Ben Hansbrough has resigned from his position on Monday to “pursue other opportunities.” Hansbrough spent two seasons as a support staffer with the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, and he was promoted to a full-time assistant coach this summer.

When the officer asked if he had consumed any alcohol that night Hansbrough maintained that he had not had anything to drink since the previous evening.

The arrest report also stated that the officer administered a standard field sobriety test and Hansbrough allegedly showed indications of intoxication. He was taken into custody and the arresting officer claimed he could smell alcohol on his person as he put him into the police car.
