Man Charged with Molesting Children at Day Care
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Police say a Des Moines man molested several children between the ages of 4 and 7 over four years at a child day care operated in his home.
The Des Moines Register reports that 48-year-old David Glenn Smith was arrested last Sunday and charged in a warrant with second-degree sexual abuse.
Police learned of the alleged abuse after one of the children told a parent. Police say investigators then interviewed the children at the day care and were told by several that they had either been abused or witnessed abuse.
The day care, run by Smith's wife, has been shut down. The wife has not been charged, and police say they don't believe she was aware of any abuse.
A call to the Smith's home on Saturday went unanswered.
