RANCHO CUCAMONGA (CBSLA.com) – A daycare owner in Rancho Cucamonga was arrested Monday on allegations he sexually assaulted a five-year-old girl.
According to Rancho Cucamonga police, 41-year-old Jose Guzman faces charges of continuous sexual abuse of a child, lewd acts with a minor under 14, and sexual penetration by a foreign or unknown object.
Guzman’s arrest was the culmination of an investigation that began Feb. 10 after a five-year-old child disclosed to her mother that she had been sexually assaulted by Guzman, police said. Guzman and his wife have run a private daycare out of their home, located at 10185 La Vine St., since 2012, police reported. It is called Guzman/Villarial Family Child Care.
