Burbank police have arrested the 14-year-old son of local day care operators for allegedly sexually molesting a 4-year-old client.
The teenager, who was not identified because he is a minor, was arrested Sunday after the alleged victim’s mother called police to lodge the complaint. An investigation determined that the male victim was at the day care center -- Mejia Family Day Care in the 2100 block of Pepper Street – when the alleged abuse occurred, police announced Tuesday.
The teen is currently being detained at Sylmar Juvenile Hall on suspicion of sexually abusing a minor, police said.
Meanwhile, parents of children attending the day care center have been notified of the allegations and are being interviewed, police said.
