Infant raped at daycare center
6 October 2013
ELYRIA, OH (WOIO) -Police say they have video of Heather Koon, 25, having sex with a baby. The video was found on Koon's laptop.
"I still haven't wrapped my mind around it. It's every parent's worst nightmare," said the baby's father, who wants to remain anonymous.
The father is speaking out about the incident so other parents can figure out if their child was also victimized. He says ABC KIDZ daycare in Elyria asked him not to talk about the incident.
"They tried to act like it was a simple assault. A few hours later they called us back again and asked us to keep it discrete," said the dad.
The shocked father's advice; "Any child that's old enough to talk, they should talk to. Any child that's not old enough to talk should be taken to a physician."
Police arrested Koon after checking up on her boyfriend, James Osborne. Osborne is listed on Lorain County's sex offender website as living at another address. Police arrested him and confiscated a laptop found in the apartment. A police report shows it belonged to Koon and contained a video file of her "engaging in sexual conduct with an unknown infant".
Police had to figure out who the child was.
"They showed us still photos," said the father.
Koon faces two counts of rape after police identified a second victim.
The management of ABC KIDZ had no comment.
Osborne and Koon are in the Lorain County Jail waiting for their day in court.
