Fairfax County police say they are getting reports that more children, some as young as 2, may have been molested at their own home day care center.

Elwood "Louie" Thomas is currently free on a $5,000 bond after arraignment on two counts of aggravated sexual battery, according to the Associated Press.

Thomas is accused of fondling a young girl when she was 11 and 12. The girl attended a home daycare that was run by a Thomas' relative. Thomas lived at that daycare, which is now closed.

"Since the time of the arrest, police have received additional reports from children that were alleging inappropriate sexual touching while they were in attendance at the Happy Land Daycare," says Lucy Caldwell, a spokesperson for the Fairfax County Police.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Fairfax County police.
