SAN JOSE » An 18-year- old man has been ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of sex­u­ally as­sault­ing a child half his age at a South San Jose day care cen­ter, and po­lice are search­ing for ad­di­tional vic­tims.

The sus­pect was not iden­ti­fied be­cause he was a mi­nor at the time of the al­leged crime.

Po­lice said they were no­ti­fied Wed­nes­day that an aide at Jump­ing Up Learn­ing Cen­ters in the 5900 block of Al­maden Ex­press­way had “in­ap­pro­pri­ately touched” a 9-year- old child.

The aide was ar­rested near the busi­ness with­out in­ci­dent and booked into Santa Clara County Ju­ve­nile Hall on sus­pi­cion of sex­u­ally as­sault­ing a mi­nor un­der the age of 14, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

De­tec­tives are work­ing with Jump­ing Up Learn­ing Cen­ters to iden­tify other po­ten­tial vic­tims.

The busi­ness did not im­me­di­ately re­spond to a re­quest for comment.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the case can con­tact De­tec­tive Chris­tian Men­doza or De­tec­tive Sergeant Brian Spears at 408- 5371397, or leave at tip with Sil­i­con Val­ley Crime Stop­pers at 408-947- STOP (7867) or svcrimestop­ Tip­sters may be el­i­gi­ble for a cash re­ward.
