Police: Man Sexually Assaulted Child at Falls Church Daycare

Fairfax County police arrested a 50-year-old man who allegedly inappropriately touched a child at an in-home daycare in the Falls Church area.

Police arrested Falls Church resident Santiago Alvarado Garcia on Friday (March 27).

“Detectives were contacted on Thursday, March 26, after a child from Digna Alvarado Garcia Daycare disclosed that they had been inappropriately touched by Garcia,” police said.

The Falls Church-area daycare has been at 2988 Monticello Drive since 2017 and was previously located at 7503 Parkwood Court in 2016, police said.

“Garcia is employed by a general contractor and has lived in the homes as his primary residence while the daycare has been in operation.”

Garcia has been charged with three counts of aggravated sexual battery.

“Victim specialists from our Victim Services Division have been assigned to ensure that the identified victim is receiving appropriate resources and assistance,” police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Major Crimes Bureau detectives at 703-246-7800, option 3. Detectives are looking to talk to people who are concerned that their child might have had inappropriate contact with Garcia.
