A Suwanee couple that was hosting Korean national teens in their home in unincorporated Suwanee has been arrested on child molestation charges, according to Gwinnett authorities.
According to authorities, Woo Ki Yi, 42, and Hyun Ju Ki, 41, of a Regal Oaks Drive address "did perform an immoral or indecent act with a child under the age of 16."
Also, a Gwinnett Police news release said that the couple provided the victims, described as six Korean national teens, with alcohol.
Regarding the children, Woo Yi is accused of “directing them to take off their clothing and kiss the other children.” Hyun Yi is accused of observing that action by Woo Yi, according to the Gwinnett County warrants.
The alleged incidents occurred from July 4 to Sept. 10, according to the warrants.
A Gwinnett Police release said Friday that they were called to a local school on Sept. 11 in reference to a "sexual abuse report."
When Gwinnett Police detectives interviewed the six victims, they said that the Yi’s would provide them with alcohol and have them play games. The losers would be required to remove an item of clothing. After the victims were naked, Woo Yi would order them to kiss and touch each other. Detectives believe this happened four or more times.
The victims range in age from 15 to 18. The parents of the six victims had paid Woo Yi more than $15,000 each to host their children while they attended local high schools, Gwinnett Police said.
The victims have been placed in temporary homes at their parents’ request, police said.
