One of the dad and mom reported the molestation of her child to authorities in November, SDPD mentioned. 

Detectives instantly started to research and with the help of SitterCity personnel, two different boys had been recognized as victims. Police say their dad and mom reported their youngsters’s molestations to detectives in December.
