RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a man has been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting a child under 10 at an unlicensed daycare center run by his family in Southern California.

The Riverside Police Department says 49-year-old Hubert Edgin was taken into custody on Friday after a girl at the daycare accused him of molesting her. It wasn’t known Monday if he has an attorney.

Police say the girl attended the daycare for about two years.

Investigators say there may be other alleged victims. Edgin might have had contact with other young children through his church and other activities.

He could face multiple counts of sexual assault. He is being held on $1 million bail.
