In September of 2021, Chico Police Officers began investigating allegations of sexual abuse at a local daycare facility in South Chico. Chico Police Detectives completed extensive follow-up in the case and identified the suspect as Chico resident Salvador Calvillo Juarez. Detectives obtained evidence of Calvillo Juarez committing sexual acts against children at his residence, which hosted a small informal daycare facility. On 12-20-2022, Chico Police Detectives arrested Calvillo Juarez at his home without incident. Calvillo Juarez was later booked into the Butte County Jail. The investigation has been forwarded to the Butte County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
