Sheriff’s Lt. Chad Bianco tells the Riverside Press-Enterprise that Ruben Avalos was arrested Thursday as he was picking up children after school and taking them to the Carlos Family Child Care center in Moreno Valley.
Bianco says deputies were led to Avalos after they were called to Riverside County Regional Medical Center where the first allegations were made. The alleged victims are under 14.
Avalos’ wife, Maria De La Luz Carlos, tells the Press-Enterprise she and her husband have been married 13 years and he sometimes helps her run the business. She declined further comment.
