Two men have been arrested on suspicion of molesting children who attended their wives’ in-home daycare businesses, Vacaville police said today. The two incidents are a coincidence and are not related, police Sgt. Denise Quatman said.
Shane Parks, 31, was arrested for allegedly inappropriately touching a 5-year-old boy in September, Quatman said. He has posted $65,000 bail and was released from the Solano County jail. Police learned on Monday about the alleged molestation at the Parks’ residence in the 300 block of Weatherly Way.
Paul Gauci, 61, was arrested for allegedly inappropriately touching a 9-year-old girl in September 2010, Quatman said. The alleged molestation occurred in the 100 block of Woodhaven Drive, Quatman said. Police received a report about the incident on Saturday and Gauci was known to the girl’s family, Quatman said.
Gauci posted $800,000 bail and was released from the Solano County jail, Quatman said. The licenses of both in-home daycare centers have been suspended, Quatman said. The Vacaville Police Department’s Family Investigative Response Services Section is trying to contact any additional witnesses or victims, Quatman said. Quatman said it is “highly unusual” for two such incidents to come to light at the same time this week.
