In 1977 local TV children’s show host, Frank ‘Mr. Wonder’ Selas, evaded arrest for sexually assaulting children on camping trips he had organized.
In his 37 years of eluding arrest, Selas is thought to have escaped to Brazil then changed his name to Szeles and returned to the U.S. in the 1980s.
Now, parents in Bonita, CA are reviewing the man’s behavior as a Cub Scout leader who gave swimming lessons to children in his backyard pool.
Selas was arrested in San Diego last week and expected in Louisiana court soon.
