The child is believed to have been 2 and 3 years old at the time.
Investigators say Pedri has a history of involvement with youth groups and activities, and was a substitute elementary school teacher up until his arrest yesterday. Investigators would like to hear from anyone who may have more information. The number to call is (209)533-5822. Pedri is being held under $200,000.00 bail.
