Police in Sheqi county, Henan Province, said on Friday that the head of Happy Baby Kindergarten surnamed Sun had been detained after a video accusing him of raping children went viral on the internet.
Police said that they are investigating and obtaining evidence under the local procuratorate's direction.
The video shows a mother protesting at the kindergarten's gate with a banner reading "Brute Sun sexually abused a little girl, immoral and outrageous!"
According to a police's notice in the video, the 4-year-old victim Xiaoya (pseudonym) told her parents that Sun took her to a bed and sexually abused her after parents continuously asked her why she did not want to go to school, state-run Global Times reported.
After receiving the tip-off, the police said they immediately assigned a gynecological examination on Xiaoya and interrogated Sun.
The video shows the kindergarten implemented a closed management system where parents could not enter the campus during class time. Sun cooked for students and ferried them to school.
A person familiar with the matter told the Beijing News that the kindergarten runs without officially issued qualification, noting that the kindergarten was poorly managed and the surveillance cameras were powered off.
The kindergarten is located in a residential building and has 55 students in three classes under the four teachers' guidance, said the person, who asked for anonymity, adding that Sun is the only adult male in this kindergarten.
