TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A registered sexual predator who was arrested in September for allegedly offering free tennis lessons to children is now facing another accusation.

A warrant was signed Thursday for the arrest of 51-year-old Anthony Julius Caesar, of Tallahassee.

According to court documents, after Caesar's arrest made headlines, another family came forward to report being approached by Caesar at Lafayette Park.

The family claims that during a trip to the park over the summer, Caesar came up to them and offered free tennis lessons for their 12-year-old son.

Caesar is a registered sexual predator after being convicted of sexual battery on a minor that occurred back in 1997.

Since his September arrest, Caesar has been charged with five counts of being a sexual predator volunteering or working where children gather.

Caesar has been booked into the Leon County Detention Facility.
