HOUSTON -

A local fitness instructor wanted for allegedly sexually assaulting a juvenile girl has been arrested in Thailand.

Forrest Wayne, 41, was taken into custody over the weekend.

Houston police say Wayne was in a health food store in the southeast Asian country of Thailand to make a purchase when an employee became suspicious of him. The employee entered Wayne's information into an internet search engine and found he was wanted for aggravated sexual assault of a child.

According to Houston police, the employee called Thailand police and Wayne was arrested.

Back in July, investigators say Wayne befriended a 13-year-old female victim while he was working as a fitness instructor. He used text messages and phone calls to start a relationship with the girl. That relationship led to Forrest engaging in multiple sexual encounters with the victim at a hotel located in the 9500 block of the Katy Freeway.

No word on when Wayne will be extradited back to Houston to face the felony charges.
