A child was sexually assaulted at an unlicensed day care in a Riverside home, and police said Sunday that other children may have also been molested by the man they arrested.
Hubert David Edgin, 49, was arrested on suspicion of multiple sexual assaults of a child at 4:30 p.m. Friday at his home in the 3400 block of Sun Court, located in the Eastside neighborhood, said Riverside city police Officer Ryan J. Railsback.
The alleged sexual abuse occurred over an undisclosed period of time and up until a few days ago, when the victim told her parents and named Edgin as the lone suspect.
The child had been taken by her parents to the family-run, unlicensed daycare for two years.
Edgin was arrested on suspicion of multiple counts of sexual assault of a minor under the age of ten and remained jailed in lieu of $1 million.
During their investigation, police discovered that Edgin may have also had contact with children through his church and other activities.
