The owner of a Menlo Park boxing gym was arrested today (June 4) on an allegation that he sexually assaulted a 15-year-old client, according to police.
Tristian Arfi, 37, of Redwood City, was arrested this afternoon on charges of oral copulation of a minor, lewd acts with a minor and sexual penetration, according to police.
The 15-year-old reported the assault occurred on June 1 at Boxing Theory, 161 Constitution Drive, police said.

In 2018, he moved to the Bay Area and began working at Equinox in Palo Alto as a trainer. He left Equinox to start Boxing Theory a few months later, according to his LinkedIn.
Arfi is in jail in lieu of $75,000 bail and is expected to appear in court tomorrow.
