A 67-year-old man who worked as a private track coach in the West Los Angeles area was arrested Wednesday morning after being charged with committing sexual battery against an athlete he was training.
A warrant had been issued for the arrest of Conrad Avondale Mainwaring, according to the Los Angeles Police Department, which described the suspect as “a private coach” who “operates at various tracks in the West Los Angeles area.”
According to police, Mainwaring allegedly sexually battered a male athlete “under the guise of physical therapy and mental focus training.”
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office filed a sexual battery charge against Mainwaring and obtained a warrant for his arrest after getting the case from detectives in the Special Assault Section of the LAPD’s Robbery-Homicide Division, police said.
Mainwaring was being held in lieu of $1 million bail, according to sheriff’s inmate records.
Anyone with information about additional possible crimes involving Mainwaring was urged to call LAPD Detective Sharlene Johnson at 213-486-6910.
