REDMOND, Wash. — Officers arrested a 20-year-old daycare worker Wednesday for allegedly molesting a 5-year-old boy, Redmond police say.

On July 15, La Petite Academy in the 8000 block of 161st Avenue NE in Redmond notified police that a family reported molestation allegations against a staff member.

The daycare immediately put the staff member on leave, police said, as the allegations were investigated. Since July 15, detectives have investigated the case, interviewing businesses, other families and social agencies.

The 20-year-old Renton man was arrested Wednesday and booked in King County Jail for investigation of child molestation charges.

Police believe there are no other victims at this time.

La Petite Academy is all over the country with at least 10 local locations, according to their website.
