ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- A worker at Our Little Haven is facing felony charges for allegedly sexually abusing a five-year old boy. Now police believe there are more victims.

Tony Griffin, 48, is in jail on a $50,000 cash only bond. Police say Griffin sexually abused a boy between March of 2006 and August of 2006 while working as a “house parent” at Our Little Haven in the 4300 block of Lindell.

“Certainly he had contact with other young children while he was at Our Little Haven,” said Assistant Circuit Attorney Tanja Engelhardt. “We believe he may have had contact with other children.”

Engelhardt does not know how long Griffin worked at Our Little Haven or if he worked at any other places that would give him access to children.

News 4 went to Our Little Haven to talk to them about the case, no one was there. According to their website, Our Little Haven is a place “Committed to provident a safe, secure and healing environment for children suffering the tragedy of abuse and neglect.” The website said the organization helps 600 children each year.

Authorities want any other possible victims to call CrimeStoppers or local police immediately.
