PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia day care owned by a man accused of sexually assaulting two children has been shut down by the state.
The Department of Human Services ordered all children to be removed from Sprouts day care on Thursday. The owner, 53-year-old Duncan Round of Medford Lakes, New Jersey, is charged with rape, sexual assault and other offenses. He was released Thursday after posting 10 percent of his $200,000 bail.
Police say he is accused of assaulting two 5-year-old children, a boy and a girl, who attended the day care. The children were interviewed by investigators, and police say physical evidence supports their stories.
An attorney for Round did not return a message Thursday.
