Anaheim daycare center worker accused of molesting two girls, ages 6 and 7

Anaheim police say they are searching for other possible victims following the arrest of an 18-year-old man on suspicion of molesting two girls at a city daycare facility.

Daniel Martinez was arrested Wednesday after meeting voluntarily with detectives, according to police. He had been working at a daycare facility in the 700 block of South Dale Avenue when he sexually assaulted two girls, ages 6 and 7, authorities said.

Police said they launched their investigation Nov. 9 after being informed of the alleged abuse. They did not name the daycare facility.

One of the victims told her mother that she had been abused and an examination supported her story, KTLA-TV reported.
