A man accused of sexually abusing six children at his wife's day care in Patchogue was arraigned Wednesday on a 15-count indictment.
Angel Tacuri, 52, was arrested a few weeks ago for allegedly abusing 3- and 8-year-old children between 2010 and 2015 at this home on North Ocean Avenue.
"He took advantage of his victims," says Suffolk District Attorney Tom Sini. "He told them he would play a game with them and give them a prize, and then he sexually abused them."
He was already facing sex abuse charges involving a 7-year-old girl in 2019.
The unlicensed day care facility was located in the couple's home.
Tacuri is charged with numerous counts including sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child. He is being held without bail and is due back in court July 21.
Sini is asking anyone who believes they may be a victim to call 631-853-4161.
