WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Montgomery County Police say 66-year-old David Fernando Javier Zaraysi sexually abused two sisters, ages 3 and 7 years old, in his wife's day care center.
Today, the "Playing And Learning Family Child Care" on Royal Bonnett Circle in Montgomery Village is still open for business.
We talked to parents who came to pick up their children and many didn't know about the arrest, including mother Rocio La Cunza, "The person that is in charge is Elsa, and Elsa is a really good person. I have a lot of references of her, and this place is really nice."
The day care center is located in the basement of the Zaraysi's home. No one came to the door when we knocked, which bore a note, giving us her lawyer's phone number. We called twice and did not receive a return call. Later, a second note was posted underneath, reading "He is innocent."
We informed parent after parent who had no idea that Zaraysi had been arrested on March 14th. He has been sitting in jail, held on $500,000 bond, ever since.
Many parents defended Zaraysi, saying they believe he is innocent, including La Cunza, "He's a really good person, I think he only tried to clean up the baby and that's it." In the middle of one interview, wide Elsa came out and yelled, "He is innocent," several times, then referred us to her lawyer.
Montgomery County Police Officer Janelle Smith says they want to get the word out about Zaraysi, "He's been charged with several sexual abuse related charges and at this time detectives are asking for any other potential victims of this suspect."
Police say if your child was at the day care, they urge you to talk to your child to find out if any inappropriate behavior took place. if you know of any inappropriate touching by Zaraysi, they're asking that you call them at 240-773-5400.
