Ashburn Babysitter Charged with Assault

An Ashburn man hired as a family babysitter has been charged with having illegal contact with a child.

According to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, Salomon Sanchez-Bernuy, 66, has been charged with kissing a child under the age of 13 with lascivious intent, a Class 1 misdemeanor; and with simple assault.

The incident was reported on Feb. 22 after an Ashburn family learned of at least two alleged encounters the suspect had with their daughter. Detectives investigated the case in coordination with Loudoun County Child Protective Services.

Detectives are working to determine whether there are other victims and are asking any residents who hired Sanchez-Bernuy as a babysitter or tutor to contact Detective J. Suess at 703-777-0475.
