Relative Describes Learning Of Alleged Child Molestation At Tulsa Daycare
TULSA, Oklahoma - Tulsa Police said they are working to get all the kids enrolled at Tiny Tots Daycare interviewed by a psychologist after a girl said she was touched inappropriately.
It is the second time the same person at Tiny Tots has been accused of this - but the first time, nothing. A relative of the little girl spoke to News On 6.
We're not identifying the woman, in order to protect the identity of the 11-year-old girl who says she was sexually abused. The woman says the girl was playing with a relative and tried to put his hand down her pants. When they asked her why she did that, she told them, "because that's what we do at daycare."
At first, the woman thought the girl was talking about another child at Tiny Tots near 71st and Lewis.
"I thought she was talking about another kid, yes," the victim's relative said.
When she found out the girl was talking about an adult?
"I called police immediately."
She said she also called the owner of Tiny Tots after learning the suspect was the owner's son.
"She kept saying, 'I don't see how this is possible; she's never been alone with them. I don't see how it's possible.'"
She says the girl was interviewed by a forensic specialist and revealed details.
"She said he would do it in a dark room and when he was finished, he would let her play on his phone and told her the only way she could play on his phone was if she promised not to tell anyone it happened," the relative said.
She had no idea the same man at Tiny Tots had been accused of this before, until she saw my news story earlier this week. That time, two sisters said the man touched them, but no other children at the daycare did. Child welfare determined it was unsubstantiated and closed the case.
"She still let him be around all the children, and I don't know how she can live with herself."
Police say they won't know about making an arrest, until after all the kids at Tiny Tots have been interviewed. When I called the daycare for a statement, they said, no comment.
