Parents were shocked to learn that at least two young children were raped at a YMCA, where kids are supposed to be protected, according to police in Kansas.

Wichita police said that they have arrested 21-year-old Caleb Gaston after being accused of having sex with two young girls at the YMCA KidZone.

Gaston has been charged with aggravated indecent liberties with a child and rape.

He was booked into jail and his bail has been set at $1 million.

According to the police investigation, Gaston worked at the Plymouth Learning Center, a church preschool.

He was fired after school officials got a complaint about inappropriate touching.

The incident was not reported to the police.

Recently, Gaston was hired by the YMCA, where he worked at the KidZone located at 402 N. Market.

Parents can leave their children between the ages of 6 weeks and 7-years-old at the KidZone while they attend classes at the YMCA.

On Wednesday, Gaston came to work and raped the four-year-old girl while her parents were attending a class nearby.

When the allegations were publicized, police learned that Gaston sexually assaulted a 4-year-old old girl several weeks prior to this incident.
