Sex Offender

A teacher’s aide is in jail on charges of sexually assaulting a child at a Belvidere child care center.

Seventeen-year-old Samuel Feffer was arrested at work Wednesday. The parents of the victim learned of the abuse when their child complained of pain. They took the child to Saint Anthony Medical Center for treatment.

Belvidere police believe the incidents occurred at the Belvidere Early Learning Center on Logan Avenue.

The victim's parents and police are asking parents to talk with their children and contact the authorities if they suspect any inappropriate contact with their children.
