SAN BRUNO (KRON) — San Bruno Police officers responded to a hospital after reports came in of a minor being treated for a sexual assault that occurred a couple days earlier, according to officials.
After a couple days of investigating, it was revealed that the 16-year-old victim had been forcibly raped by 22-year-old Armando Alejandro Quintana of San Bruno.
San Bruno detectives arrested Quintana in his home without incident.
A search warrant was also issued at the home.
Investigators soon determined that Quintana worked at an after-school program at Belle Air Elementary School.
Learning about his arrest was scary for some parents.
“It’s terrible, the schools needs to do better background checks and let parents know,” said Veronica Mendoza, who has a third-grader attending the afterschool program.
Mendoza said parents depend on the school to keep their children safe.
“These are our kids. That’s why we leave our kids after school so they can watch over them,” she said.
Police say the victim in this case was not in the program.
“At this time, there is no indication that students in the afterschool program were victimized by Quintana,” the police department said in a press release.
If you have any helpful information with this case, you are urged to contact the San Bruno Police Department at (650) 616-7100.
No further details are available at this time.
