Prescott Valley Police Investigate Allegations of Abuse at Child Care Center


Police in Prescott Valley say they’re investigating numerous reports of child abuse that allegedly happened at a child care center.

They say one arrest has been made in connection with the investigation, but details weren’t immediately released Thursday.

However, the Daily Courier reports an 18-year-old man has been taken into custody for the alleged child abuse of a 3-year-old girl at Gummy Bear Early Learning Center.

According to the newspaper, the Prescott Valley Police Department Criminal Investigations Section is actively investigating potentially four other cases of alleged child abuse at the child care center.

Police say the Gummy Bear Early Learning Center is cooperating with the investigation and the appropriate licensing agency has been notified.
