NORMANDY PARK, WA (June 15, 2015) — Police arrested a childcare provider accused of raping a 5-year-old girl at a daycare after the victim’s father walked in on the abuse.

According to KCPQ, a father walked into a classroom at Kid’s Country Child Care on June 5, and he found a 31-year-old male teacher crouched behind a bookshelf with his daughter.

The teacher told the victim’s father that he was having a “tickle fight” with the girl.

After the girl and her father left, the girl told her dad that the teacher had touched her inappropriately.

The father called Child Protective Services, and they interviewed the young girl.

According to KCPQ, the girl, who is described as bright and articulate, told investigators that the teacher raped her. Police then interviewed the teacher. He said he touched the girl beneath her underwear, but he claimed it was accidental.

The teacher was arrested and booked into King County Jail. He is expected to be charged with first-degree child rape.

KCPQ is not yet naming the suspect, as he has not been charged.
