The Riverside Police Department Sexual Assault – Child Abuse Unit investigated reports children made to their parents about abuse they experienced while at the Diaz Family Daycare.
Their investigation led them to 73-year old David Diaz, an employee of the daycare. Within the past three years, Diaz is suspected of sexually assaulting up to 8 children.
This number could be higher as some victims may not yet be discovered or come forward. The Diaz Family Daycare has been in business for over 30 years.
On March 18, 2020, Diaz was located at a home on the 5000 block of Monte Carlo Court, the location of the daycare. He was arrested for several counts of lewd acts against children and booked at the Robert Presley Detention Center where he is currently in custody under a bail of $6 million.
