    A man sexually assaulted a girl at an in-home daycare in Virginia several times in the fall, according to Fairfax County police.

    The 40-year-old suspect lived in the home in the 13100 block of Kidwell Field Road near Herndon where his girlfriend operated the daycare, police said.

    The 12-year-old victim went to the daycare after school, police said. In March, she told school staff about the assaults that took place from October to December.

    Detectives arrested Oscar Perez Rangel at the home Friday, police said.

    "This 40-year-old man lived in the in-home daycare in Herndon," police spokeswoman Julie Parker said. "He had access to the children and unfortunately set his sights on this 12-year-old girl."

    He is charged with five counts of sex abuse and is being held without bond.

    His girlfriend's permit to operate a daycare for up to four children was revoked Monday.

    There’s no evidence of any other victims, but anyone with more information about the case should call police at 703-246-7885.

    Child Protective Services is assisting the victim and her family.

    According to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Rangel, a citizen of Mexico, was previously removed from the United States. Rangel also "has felony convictions for attempted robbery, use of a firearm during the commission of a felony and illegal re-entry after removal," ICE says.
