Who is Alyshia Tkacs? Ex-cheer coach arrested for allegedly molesting girl, 12, for TWO YEARS

Written by chandan24@

CRANSTON, RHODE ISLAND: A 33-year-old Rhode Island cheer coach is charged with molesting a 12-year-old girl every day for two years, starting when the girl was only 12. The girl is now an adult.

Alyshia Tkacs was taken into custody on June 17 after the alleged victim came forward in April and said something. According to the Daily Mail, detectives from the East Providence Police Department found proof that the victim met Tkacs in 2012 when the victim was coaching a competitive cheerleading squad. It is said that the attack went on until 2014. “The victim said that the sexual assaults happened almost every day for two years in East Providence and Barrington, Rhode Island,” Lt. Michael Rapoza said.

The accused was a nurse at Woman & Infants Hospital. After the accusations came to light, she was suspended without pay. The hospital is owned by Care New England. Their spokesperson, Raina Smith, said in a statement that “Care New England did background checks before hiring, and they were clean.” She has been fired and is not getting paid. She is also not allowed on our campus. We care a lot about the health and safety of our community, so when we heard about it, we acted right away.”

The owner of CheerFactor All Stars, where the suspect’s young daughter is said to be a cheerleader, also made a statement. It said, “Please be aware that Alyshia Tkacs has never taught, coached, or worked for CheerFactor or any of its affiliated gyms or programs in any way.” As the parent of an all-star cheer athlete, her only connection to the program is that her daughter is a participant.

Veronica Seavey went to nursing school with Tkacs, and she told NBC that she can’t believe the accusations. “She had a daughter that age, and it didn’t seem like something she would do,” Seavey said. “She was my nurse at Women & Infants when I had my baby three and a half months ago. She said, “You can’t trust anyone.” She was glad that the victim spoke up. “Who knows, maybe that woman just saved her daughter from it. We don’t know if she kept a lot of kids from being abused, but it’s possible,” she said.

The Barrington Police Department is also looking into the claims. The former coach hasn’t entered a plea yet, and online records don’t show that she has a lawyer who can speak for her. Police said that Tkacs is being held without bail at the Cranston Women’s Facility. She is due in court on June 23.
