Maryland man accused of sexually assaulting children at unlicensed daycare in Annapolis: police

Maryland police recently added more charges against a man accused of sexually assaulting children at an illegally operated daycare.

Roberto Medina, 57, has been charged with a slew of sex crimes including first-degree rape, second-degree rape and third-degree sex crimes. The suspect was also booked on charges of fourth-degree sex offense and second-degree assault.

The sexual assaults reportedly occurred at an unlicensed day care facility in Annapolis between 2005 and 2015. FOX 5 in Washington, D.C., obtained court documents that reveal that the first victim came forward in March 2019 and said she was 5 years old when Medina assaulted her.

The suspect allegedly brought the victim into a room, closed the door and forced himself on her at least three times. The victim also told police that Medina secretly showed pornographic videos of her on his cellphone without sound.

The Annapolis Police Department said investigators became aware of the second victim’s accusations in July. The 14-year-old came forward and said she was assaulted by Medina when she was 6 years old, FOX 5 reported.

The woman running the company — who FOX 5 reported was Medina’s wife — went by the name Betty.

“Betty was babysitting there for approximately 16 years, from 2003 to 2019,” Annapolis police said in a statement. Police added that they did not believe she was aware of the alleged sexual crimes.
