A Maryland man has been charged with the sexual abuse of two children at a day care center.

The mother of a 3-year-old girl noticed an inflammation while giving the girl a bath, NBCWashington.com's Pat Collins reported. The girl's 7-year-old sister said she believed it happened at the day care because the same thing had happened to her when she went to the day care, which is located in the basement of a residence in Montgomery Village, Md.

After an investigation, Montgomery County Police arrested 66-year-old Javier Zaraysi, the husband of the day care provider, on March 14. Zaraysi was charged with two counts of sexual abuse of a minor, two counts of committing a second-degree sex offense, and two counts of committing a third-degree sex offense. He is being held on $500,000 bond.

Detectives say Zaraysi allegedly assulted the girls during naptime when his wife would go upstairs to let the children rest.

On the door of the daycare Thursday evening, a sign reading "He is innocent" was posted, Collins reported.

Authorities are still determining whether or not other children who attended the day care were also sexually abused.
