Pembroke Pines Man Accused of Molesting Young Girl: Police

A Pembroke Pines man was arrested after a woman came forward claiming he sexually assaulted her for nearly 10 years beginning when she was just four years old, authorities said.

Wayne Lincoln Chin, 57, was arrested Monday on multiple counts of sexual assault and lewd & lascivious behavior, Pembroke Pines Police said. Jail records showed he was being held without bond Tuesday, and attorney information wasn’t available.

Police said the victim, who is now an adult, came forward earlier this month to claim Chin had molested her on numerous occasions between 1998 and 2008, when she was between the ages of 4 and 14.

Detectives have unconfirmed information that Chin previously worked as a soccer coach in Pembroke Pines during the late 1990s and early 2000s, officials said. Chin would have had contact with several juveniles during that timeframe if that information is accurate, and it’s possible there are more alleged victims, police said.
