Babysitter arrested in three molestation cases

A 22-year-old Poway man was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of molesting three boys he was hired to babysit, police said Wednesday.

Zayne St. Julien was taken into custody as he was exiting an airplane at the San Diego International Airport, according to the San Diego Police Department. He was booked into the San Diego County jail.

Police alleged that between July and December of 2022, St. Julian molested three boys, ages 7, 8 and 11.

In each case, the victim’s parents hired St. Julien from a website known as SitterCity, police reported.

One parent reported the molestation of her child last month, which prompted the investigation, police said. With the assistance of SitterCity personnel, two other boys were identified as victims, and their parents reported the molestation this month.

St. Julien allegedly committed each molestation in the victims’ homes.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about these incidents, or who believes St. Julien may have targeted other victims, is urged to call the department’s Child Abuse Unit at (619) 531-2260 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at (888) 580-8477.
