MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Frank Gottie was shocked when he took his 5-year-old son for a checkup at the doctor on Thursday.

"The doctor said he been fondled with," said Gottie. "They had to go by their procedures and call DHS."

Gottie says his son told the doctor a bus monitor at his daycare, Klassy Kids on Getwell Road, touched him inappropriately. 

"When I first heard it, I broke down crying because it's a daycare, you know my son supposed to be safe there," said Gottie. "I asked him why this man would even touch you, he told me 'he touched on me because I do good in school'."

Memphis police confirmed they were contacted by Gottie, while a woman at Klassy Kids did not want to comment.

Gottie's child has been going to the daycare for about a year. He says he has tried to warn his son about what can happen in life.

"I talk to him about things like this all the time," said Gottie.

Gottie says his son is five and there is a lot he doesn't know yet, but he does know what he wants to happen to the man accused of fondling his son.

"I want to press charges to the fullest extent," said Gottie.
