GRAND FORKS, N.D. — Grand Forks police have charged a daycare worker with sexually abusing four children.

Police say 31-year-old Timothy Tollefson, of Manvel, was arrested Friday on four felony counts of gross sexual imposition.

Assistant state's attorney Jason McCarthy says the children went to Immanuel Christian Children's Center. Tollefson worked there from March 2009 until last month.

McCarthy says Tollefson also worked in East Grand Forks, Minn., at Lil Point Child Care and Little Miracles East in 2008 and 2009.

Authorities say parents concerned about a child who had contact with Tollefson shouldn't ask them about it but rather should contact police.

McCarthy says he doesn't know if Tollefson has an attorney. Tollefson could not be reached for comment at the jail or at his home. Immanuel daycare did not immediately comment.
