A Lake County man has been charged and is accused of sexually abusing a 5-year-old at the daycare run by his wife.
60-year-old Mario Montes-Deoca is charged with predatory criminal sexual assault. The Lake County States Attorney’s office says he admitted to the assault during questioning by Waukegan police.
Police say the child complained of the alleged attack to a parent on July 10th.
Montes-Deoca and his wife have been living in the home that houses the daycare for 15 years.
Based on that fact, investigators have concerns there are more victims.
Concerned parents are being asked to contact the Lake County State’s Attorney’s office or Waukegan police.
Montes-Deoca is out on bond and has surrendered his passport and can have no contact with anyone under the age of 18.
