Mason City daycare operator accused of sexual abuse of child

MASON CITY – An arrest has been made in connection with a child sex abuse case that was reported to the Mason City Police Department earlier this year.

Tawny Marie Symonds, age 30 of Wells, Minnesota, was arrested Wednesday night and charged with sexual abuse in the second degree, a class B felony. She was also charged with class C felony assault and class D felony child endangerment.

These charges are a result of a joint Iowa Department of Human Services investigation with the Mason City Police Department that began in February of this year at a residence in Mason City, where Symonds operated an in-home daycare.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation also assisted in the investigation.

Police told NIT “The defendant’s day care was a licensed day care. The other children were interviewed. It does not appear that there are any additional victims at this time.”
