SNAP responds to disturbing abuse case in Washington D.C.
This is an extremely disturbing case, and we are glad that Randolph King is now behind bars where he cannot hurt more children. At the same time, we are disgusted that it took three days for the police to be called in to investigate.
This victim is a three-year old child. The alleged perpetrator is 21. There are absolutely zero circumstances where it is reasonable for these two to be alone and naked together. Police should have been immediately notified, and we are extremely disappointed that the witness in this case did immediately do so.
We hope that police soon uncover the connection that King has to this daycare and are able to determine whether or not he may have abused other children there. We urge officials at Zion Baptist Church to use the full extent of their resources to seek out other victims and help them heal.
