SAYREVILLE, NJ - In a startling turn of events, Kyle Finn, 20, of Sayreville has been charged with yet another assault on a child at the Superhero Schoolhouse Day Care in Parlin. Finn has been charged with six counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault, seven counts of second-degree sexual assault, and five counts of second-degree endangering the welfare of a child, with the charges varying victim-to-victim.
First-degree aggravated sexual assault involves the sexual penetration of a person by someone who has a familial or supervisory relationship with the victim. In New Jersey, aggravated sexual assault is the most serious of the sexual offenses as it is a crime of the first degree.
Operating in Sayreville since 2015, the center has been abruptly closed following the arrest and charging of Finn. The owner/manager Charmaine Larkin, 44, of South River, the day care director, was processed and released on a charge of failure to report child abuse, a disorderly persons offense. A press release from Larkin's attorneys was stuck on the door of the daycare center this week. According to parents who have children at the facility, there was no additional information provided to them regarding the closure. Larkin also posted this release on her Facebook page. All content on the daycare's website and Facebook page have been removed. The Press Release reads, "No student, parent, employee or staff had presented a credible claim of abuse prior to Mr. Kyle Finn's arrest."
Middlesex County Prosecutor Yolanda Ciccone and Chief John Zebrowski of the Sayreville Police Department announced today that Finn was charged following an investigation by Detective Matthew Kenny of the Sayreville Police Department and Detective Suzanne Kowalski of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, which determined the children were abused at the day care. Finn is being held at the Middlesex County Adult Corrections Center pending a Detention Hearing in Superior Court on Friday.
The investigation is active and continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Kenny at (732) 525-5413 or Detective Kowalski at (732) 745-3287.
