PEORIA, ARIZONA – Authorities allege that a Peoria, Arizona-based martial arts instructor sexually abused a 13-year-old student on multiple occasions, resulting in sex abuse and molestation charges. Elsa Cristina Flores, 22, was charged with six counts of sexual activity with a minor, one count of child molestation, and one count of aggravated luring of a minor earlier this month, according to PEOPLE.
The matter was brought to the attention of authorities after the teenage boy’s parents discovered romantic and sexual communications on his phone, according to arrest paperwork obtained by CBS News affiliate AZfamily.com. The adolescent locked his phone and refused to give his parents the password, according to the arrest records, so his parents approached Flores.
