The husband of a Bronx daycare provider repeatedly raped and abused a young girl under his wife’s care, police said.
According to authorities, Alberto Hernandez, 60, allegedly preyed on a girl, who is now 13, when she was between 6 and 10 years old. The girl told a staff member at her school this week, who then alerted the NYPD.
The girl was cared for at Maria Cortez Daycare, in an apartment on Heath Ave. and W. 229th St. in Kingsbridge Heights, and Hernandez got her alone several times while the other children went outside, police said.
He’s hit with an array of charges, including multiple counts of rape, police said.
His wife is a licensed day care provider, and takes care of up to eight children at a time, cops said. She did not return messages seeking comment.
