High School Employee Arrested for Child Rape on Cape Cod, Police Say

There is no connection between Daniel Robles' work at Dennis Yarmouth Regional High School and the investigation at this time, police said


A man who works at a high school on Cape Cod was arrested Monday morning for allegedly assaulting and raping a child, Yarmouth police say.

Daniel Robles, of West Yarmouth, faces charges of indecent assault and battery and rape of a child, Yarmouth police said Tuesday.

Robles works at the Dennis Yarmouth Regional High School as a coach and paraeducator, according to the school's website.

There is no connection between his work at the school and the investigation at this time, police said. School administrators have placed Robles on administrative leave.

"Mr. Robles works as a paraprofessional and an assistant football coach at Dennis-Yarmouth Regional School District," a spokesperson said in a statement to NBC10 Boston. "He has been placed on administrative leave. At this time his arrest is not associated with his employment at Dennis-Yarmouth. By law we are not permitted to comment on individual employees or their status, so I have no further comment at this time."

Robles was arrested around 10 a.m. Monday, booked at the Yarmouth Police Department and transferred to the Barnstable District Court for arraignment, officials said.

An investigation is ongoing and authorities may seek additional charges, police said.

It wasn't immediately clear if Robles had an attorney who could speak to the charges.
