A 27-year-old man was arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a boy, who was 8 months old at the time, in D.C. around August 8 and 10, according to D.C. police. An affidavit released Thursday states a 10-year-old girl witnessed the incident.

Kevin Jones, Jr. of Northeast, D.C. was arrested on Wednesday and charged with misdemeanor child sexual abuse.

According to an affidavit from the Superior Court of D.C., Jones went into the basement of a home daycare owned by his father, and took the young boy from the care of a 10-year-old girl.

Jones oversaw four children during the time of the incident. The 10-year-old girl also attended the daycare.

Jones picked up the boy and cradled him with one arm. The affidavit states Jones then used his free hand to "manually force open" the child's mouth and began kissing him with an open mouth.

The girl told police Jones put his tongue in the boy's mouth and also on his face. According to the affidavit, the girl witnessed the incident and when Jones finished kissing the boy he put him down on the girl.

The girl stated the incident was "nasty" and she wiped the boy's face to clean him, the affidavit states.

Officials say the assaults took place in the 3800 block of East Capitol Street, NE.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact (202) 727-9099.
