A special investigative unit within the Mountain View Police Department is looking into child abuse allegations at a local preschool. Police say that there is an accusation that an employee of Little Acorn Preschool inappropriately touched a student.
Police did not release many details on the case because the investigation is in process. In a July 17 statement to the press, Sgt. Dan Vicencio did say that the accused staff member has been placed on administrative leave. Students at the preschool have been interviewed by detectives trained specifically to talk to children about suspected abuse, and parents were informed about the investigation in a letter.
Little Acorn Preschool is run by the First Presbyterian Church of Mountain View and is located at 1667 Miramonte Ave.
"As long as the investigation is going on we don't have any comments at this time," a representative with the church said.
As of Wednesday afternoon, no arrests have been made, according to police. "We will not make a determination as to the guilt or innocence of the parties involved until we have collected enough evidence to move forward one way or the other," Vicencio said.
