A Fresno Police Spokesperson said the department was made aware of the claims and is investigating the incident.
The parent wants to remain anonymous to protect her child’s identity but sent this statement to our station:
“Thee fact that my daughter had to see a grown man’s private area is beyond my comprehension and I’m livid! He isn’t even fired he is suspended!”
