An 18-year-old man faces multiple charges after allegedly molesting at least two children at a Jefferson-area preschool.
Although details are extremely limited at this time, Alexander Tredway faces two counts of Child Molestation, two counts of Cruelty to Children and one count of Sodomy in the alleged incident.
"After receiving information of possible child molestation at the Bright Beginnings Preschool, the Investigative Division at Jefferson Police Department, with assistance from the Tree House and Jackson County DFACS, stated an investigation," said Jefferson Police Chief Joseph Wirthman in a brief statement. "Arrested during this investigation was Alexander Tredway."
Wirthman said there were "two victims at this time," but that the investigation was ongoing.
A phone call seeking further information on the case went unanswered early Thursday evening.
The preschool in question, Bright Beginnings of Jefferson, is located on Washington Street, just north of the downtown Jefferson area.
