TROY, Ohio (WDTN) – A worker at a child care center in Troy was arrested, charged, and arraigned on a sex crime, according to court documents.
Andrew Cain, 35, has been charged with one count of gross sexual imposition after a complaint was made involving some sort of act with a juvenile at JJJ Childcare in Troy.
A parent contacted Troy Police, saying their child told their grandmother that Cain inappropriately touched them over the clothes on their private parts.
“All of the allegations we have to this point are within a few months,” said Capt. Jeff Kunkleman with Troy Police.
Court documents indicate at least two other children, who all attend JJJ Childcare, have said they were inappropriately touched by Cain.
“We have multiple victims making allegations at this time and we had multiple victims at the end of last week,” said Capt. Kunkleman.
Cain’s family owns JJJ Childcare. 2 NEWS reached out out to Cain’s father, who had no comment other than saying the allegations are not true and they have a lawyer who will fight the charges.
Cain has posted bond but is not allowed to have unsupervised visits with juveniles.
“Representatives of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, who provide oversight for daycares, they were there yesterday also and we involved Children Services in the investigation early on,” Capt. Kunkleman said.
He went on to say the investigation is far from over, as there have been additional accusations, and victims are still being interviewed.
Parents are encouraged to talk with their children, as authorities say there could be more victims.
“It’s a difficult conversation to have and it’s very easy to put an idea into a child’s head, so of course we don’t want that to happen. So the best way is to speak in general with your child and talk to them about good touches and bad touches,” says Capt. Kunkleman.
