An assistant teacher at a Minnieland Academy in Bristow, Virginia was arrested for inappropriately touching a 5-year-old girl, according to authorities.

Authorities say the victim told a parent who notified the academy and three additional 5-year-old victims were also identified.

The suspect has been identified by police as 27-year-old Taylor Keith Boykin.

Police say they believe there are more victims because Boykin worked for Minnieland for 7 years.

The same company came under fire in 2016 when two daycare teachers at a Manassas Minnieland Academy were convicted of child cruelty among other counts for abusive behavior toward a classroom of 2-year-olds that a prosecutor described as a "baby fight club."

On Tuesday, May 1, the Prince William County Police executed a search warrant at this location of the Minnieland Academy.
