The husband of a woman who runs a Maple Ridge daycare has been charged with sexually assaulting a young girl.

Edgar Hernandez, 48, faces one count each of sexual interference and sexual assault.

Police allege Hernandez touched a young girl inappropriately at Dragonfly Daycare, operated out of his Maple Ridge home.

“Ridge Meadows RCMP feel it is important that the public is advised of this incident due to the environment in which the alleged offence occurred," said Cpl. Alanna Dunlop.

Hernandez has been released on bail with conditions.

Dunlop added that more details of the allegations are not being disclosed, as the matter is now before the courts.
