HICKORY — A Hickory woman whose husband is facing a felony sex charge involving a child has been arrested for running an unlicensed day care where police say the incident occurred.

Authorities say 41-year-old Crisofor Parra Casareal and his wife, 32-year-old Tonya Lynn Casareal, live at the house where police say the day care operated. Hickory police received a report of a child being sexually assaulted at the home on July 9.

Cristofor Casareal was arrested on July 11 and charged with indecent liberties with a child and first-degree sexual assault. His status couldn’t be determined Thursday.

An arrest report says Tonya Lynn Casareal is charged with one count of felony operating an unlicensed day care. She is jailed on a $3,000 secured bond. It’s not known if either have an attorney.
