Cops: NY martial arts teacher raped 13-yo student | News
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Albany martial arts instructor has been charged with raping a young teen student.
State and town of Rotterdam police say Friday that 27-year-old Christopher Gallup of Albany raped the 13-year-old girl at a home in Rotterdam and a tae kwon do school in Duanesburg in 2009.
Troopers say the girl came forward after Gallup was arrested last week on child pornography charges in Colonie, another Albany-area town.
They asked anyone with information about Gallup to contact authorities.
Gallup was arraigned Thursday on two counts of second-degree rape and jailed on $40,000 bail. He didn't enter a plea. His lawyer wasn't available for comment Friday afternoon.
Police are asking anyone with information about Gallup to give them a call.
