A daycare worker was arrested after an investigation by the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department, reports CBS Los Angeles.
According to the news release by the Sheriff’s Department, the investigation began into Humberto Escobar, 76, after several accusations of child sexual abuse were made against Escobar.
The abuse was alleged to have occurred at Escobar Family Child Care in Hesperia.
Escobar was booked at High Desert Detention Center is Victorville on a charge of penetration with a foreign object with a child less than 10 years old

These allegations are heartbreaking but I am glad that they are now out in the open. I hope the child in this case knows that he or she has a voice and does not need to suffer in silence.
