A 38-year-old daycare employee is facing charges for the sexual exploitation of two juveniles. FCPD Chief Edwin C. Roessler Jr updated the community on the investigation. “The arrest we are about to brief you on is one that is horrific to the safety of our youth in our community. My prayers will continue to be given to the victims and their families as a predator has traumatically harmed their lives” said Chief Roessler.
On March 28, the police report they were contacted along with Child Protective Services after a child disclosed that they had been inappropriately touched by Rolly Hammond, of Burke. This investigation led to an additional juvenile being identified as a victim who had been abused for several years by Hammond, according to police.
