children into his apartment... and sexually assaulting them. police say it happened at this apartment complex... near charleston and nellis... : "there's a lot of children that live here and sometimes they play outside here at night" saturday police arrested azucena-- who also goes by "david". police charged him with sexual misconduct... kidnapping... and lewdness. : "i'm glad they caught him because that's very sick" investigators tell fox5 azucena lured kids with candy. that's a one parents need to warn their kids about. one key thing that parents can do is teach their children the appropriate names for their body parts at a very early age. so if something is happening they have the language to describe what's happening to the parent in a way they understand" she says it can also help kids avoid feeling afraid or ashamed... and to speak up if something bad does happen to them.
shame or embarrassment about those body parts is really important for kids so if somebody does touch them inappropriately they're not going to blame themselves or feel shame or be reluctant to say something" also, to listen to your kids, how they react to others, and pay attention if your child starts acting differently. "just keeping that open honest dialogue, constantly reinforcing to kids that no matter what you tell me you won't get in trouble i'm not going to be upset with you but if anybody ever hurts you or touches you in one of the private places we've talked about you need to let me know because investigators ask anyone who thinks their child may have been a victim... to come forward. and if you know more information about azucena.. and his accused crimes .. you are asked to call crimestoppers at 702-385-55-55.
