David Lee Roth impersonator accused of Chilliwack sex crimes still on the lam

Alleged victim of David Kuntz-Angel scared her attacker is on the loose and in the community

A relative of the alleged victim of a man charged with numerous sex crimes says she’s scared because the accused has been wanted for more than a month.

She just hopes someone calls police if he’s spotted.

“I am living a life in fear 24/7 until he is caught,” the woman told The Progress on condition of anonymity.

David Kuntz-Angel faces numerous sex charges in Chilliwack, Hope and Vernon, and is known by some locally, and in numerous circles across Canada as far away as Brantford, Ontario, for impersonating American rock star David Lee Roth.

In addition to the sex charges in B.C., and his previous behaviour impersonating the lead singer of Van Halen, Kuntz-Angel was also involved in a love triangle that ended with a homicide Ontario. He was not implicated in that crime.

A warrant was issued for the 52-year-old on June 23 in Chilliwack and his mug shot was featured in Crimestoppers.

He was arrested on June 30. Then, he was released on bail, and almost immediately is alleged to have breached. A relative of an alleged victim said the address he gave upon being released on bail was false so that by itself was a breach.

Before his July 4 court appearance in Chilliwack, Kuntz-Angel had outstanding warrants for invitation to sexual touching a person under 14 in Chilliwack in 2006, and invitation to sexual touching under 16 in Chilliwack and Hope from 2008. He is also charged with one count of touching a young person for a sexual purpose in Chilliwack in 2013, sexual assault in Vernon in 2014, sexual assault in Chilliwack and Hope in August 2016, and “procuring” in Vernon in November 2016.

Kuntz-Angel also faces one count of assault from Vernon on Oct. 1, 2016, one count of assault causing bodily harm in Chilliwack on Dec. 15, 2016, and one count of uttering threats in Chilliwack on Jan. 1, 2017.

His alleged victim’s family member just hopes someone turns him in, since she has anecdotally been told he’s been seen around Chilliwack.

”If the word gets out there people can be aware and on the lookout,” she said. “He’s been missing for almost two months now, as soon as he was released from jail, a few days later he went missing, it’s ridiculous.”
