SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — With the child in their arms, the parents of an 11-month-old toddler who they say was sexually assaulted at a church day care center last month asked again Monday night for anyone with information to come forward

"What we know to be true is that our daughter was in good health when she was dropped off at day care, and when she was picked up, she was in a condition that required hospitalization," father Jason Schwaller said.

The girl was at Our Lady of the Lakes Child Care Center in Random Lake on June 26 from 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to court documents.

Later that night, her grandmother was changing the girl's diaper when she found blood. The girl, 10 months old at the time, underwent reconstructive surgery at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee hours later.

The injuries were consistent with sexual penetration within the last 24 hours, court records said.
