A Moreno Valley man has been arrested on charges he sexually molested three little girls at the day care center his wife operates from their home, reports KTLA. 61-year-old Ruben Avalos was "booked for investigation of sex with a child, forced oral copulation and lewd acts upon a child." All the victims are under the age of 14; investigators were led to Avalos after one victim was treated at a local hospital. Avalos sometimes "helps out" at his wife's in-home day care center. The couple have been together 13 years, and the center licensed since November 2006.
