LA-area coach charged with molesting young skater

POMONA, Calif. (AP) -- A youth ice skating coach who has worked at rinks throughout Southern California has been charged with molesting one of his skaters, and authorities say they're looking for more possible victims.

Sheriff's Captain Mike Parker says 29-year-old Donald Vincent of Torrance was charged Monday with three felonies including lewd acts with a minor, and is being held on $1 million bail. It's not clear whether he has hired an attorney.

According to Parker, the now-17-year-old victim says he was molested at the coach's home in Hacienda Heights repeatedly from ages 12 to 15.

Parker says Vincent has coached for seven years at seven different rinks in Lakewood, Norwalk, Paramount, Harbor City, Anaheim and Riverside.

Sheriff's special victims investigators are asking anyone with knowledge of other possible victims to come forward.
