The owner of a Manassas gymnastics center was charged Monday with the repeated sexual assault of one of his students many years ago, when the girl was six to eight years old.

The victim reported in November 2013 that Parvis Youseffi, 51, the longtime owner of GMS Gymnastics, had assaulted her on more than one occasion in 1987 and 1988.

Youseffi, who has no attorney listed, was charged with aggravated sexual battery and held without bond.

Employees at the gym center declined to comment.
