Tahoe daycare worker arrested in child sex assault probe

RENO, Nev. (AP) — A licensed worker at a daycare center at Lake Tahoe has been arrested as part of an ongoing investigation into possible child sexual assault.

Police say 55-year-old David Rodrigues-Flores was taken into custody without incident on Wednesday after multiple victims reported a pattern of abuse dating back at least two years at the Pequenos Rascals Learning Center in South Lake Tahoe, California.

He was booked on one count of suspicion of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14. He was being held Thursday on $500,000 bail at the El Dorado County Jail.

The South Lake Tahoe Police Department says Rodriguez-Flores is one of the licensees of the child care facility. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.

Lt. Shannon Laney told the Reno Gazette-Journal Thursday no one else at the facility is suspected of any wrongdoing.
