Police are looking for 19-year-old Carlos Rodriguez, who’s being investigated for allegedly fondling the boy and pulling his pants down multiple times during nap time.
Court documents show that the boy’s mother picked up her four kids from Destinations II Children’s Center, off 581 N. Redwood Road, in March and the boy told his mother about what happened then stated, “I told him no, but he did it anyway."
Salt Lake City Detective, Cody Lougy said they’ve followed up on a few leads but need the public’s help in finding Rodriguez.
Police have no photos of Rodriguez so don't really know what he looks like.
"It certainly gives us grave concern that this individual is on the streets and we're actively looking for him." Lougy said.
Lougy said after weeks of investigating and screening the case with the district attorney charges were filed on Rodriguez Thursday.
"This individual has been charged with first degree felony one sexual abuse of a child." Lougy said.
2News stopped by the day care and found that it had been sold by the old owner to Patricia Garay, just weeks after the abuse and she had no idea this incident occurred until after she took over.
If you have any information on Rodriguez or this case, you’re asked to call Salt Lake City Police Department.
