NOVATO (KRON) — A North Bay daycare worker has been arrested on a child molestation charge.
Authorities said it happened earlier this week at a daycare facility in Novato. Forty-three-year-old Emilio Bencomo, a worker at the day care on the 1400 block of Park Avenue, is accused of inappropriately touching a 5-year-old girl.
Bencomo was arrested Wednesday and has since been bailed out.
KRON went to the daycare, where Bencomo also lives, to try to get his side of the story, but nobody answered the door.
The day care is referred to as the Happy Hippos Daycare online.
