Emmanuel Ogunmodede is facing two criminal charges for allegedly molesting two pre-school girls at Bola Learning Center, a pre-school in the Little Haiti section of Miami. According to law enforcement records, the teenage boy was first accused of molesting a 5-year-old girl at a Little Haiti preschool in 2014. Then in July 2016, another 5-year-old girl at the same school, Bola Learning Center, came forward and told detectives he forced her to perform a sex act on him when she was 3, according to police. Bola is a privately-owned and accredited pre-school and VPK provider. It is unknown why the teenage boy was at the pre-school.
According to the arrest report, the first girl to come forward said in a forensic interview that she went to the bathroom by herself and the lights were turned off. That’s when he came in. He told her that he would pinch her if she didn’t comply. She said she told him to stop and went back to class, according to the report. Then on July 28, a 5-year-old girl told detectives during a forensic interview that he molested her when she was 3, according to his arrest report. She said went to the bathroom by herself and he followed her, a detective wrote in the report. “Detectives believe there are other victims,” said Det. Kenia Fallat, a Miami police spokesman. “They have exhausted every avenue and need to make the public aware.”
