The case of a Bridgewater State University student who allegedly sexually assaulted two children at the university-run daycare continues to grow.
Monday night, parents of students at the Mitchell Elementary School in Bridgewater, Massachusetts- where the suspect once observed a class- got the chance to voice their concerns.
Officials said Wrentham, Massachusetts, resident Kyle Patrick Loughlin had no interaction with the second grade class he observed.
Loughlin pleaded not guilty last Wednesday to charges of rape of a child and aggravated indecent assault and battery on a child under 14. Prosecutors say the boys are between four and five years old.
The 21-year-old Loughlin was arrested last week. He's held without bail until a dangerousness hearing next week and can't be reached for comment.
University spokeswoman Eva Gaffney says Loughlin was one of several students working at the licensed center and had passed a required background check. She says parents have been informed and will receive assistance.
The state's child welfare agency is investigating. Meanwhile, officials at Mitchell Elementary School say they are going to revisit the regulations around their observer partnership with the university.
