BRENTWOOD, NY (The New York Post) – A Suffolk County day care owner was arrested Friday for sexually abusing a child, cops said.
Jose Flores, co-owner of Little Sponges Family Day Care in Brentwood, allegedly abused a 7-year-old girl who attended the facility earlier this year.
Authorities apparently found out about what happened and launched a Special Victims investigation, according to police officials.
Flores, 56, was taken into custody around 1 p.m. Friday and Little Sponges was shut down, soon-after.
Cops fear that he may have even more alleged victims.
“The investigation is continuing,” said Suffolk County Police. “Detectives are asking anyone who may have been a victim of Flores to contact the Special Victims Section through Crime Stoppers.”
Flores was charged with first-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child. He’s scheduled to be arraigned Saturday at First District Court in Central Islip.
