Camacho was arrested yesterday at approximately 4:45 p.m. at the Hudson County

The HCPO Special Victims Unit was contacted by the Division of Child Protection and Permanency, Institutional Abuse Investigations Unit about possible abuse by Camacho, and as a result, launched an investigation.

The matter was first reported to the IAIU by the daycare center.
