On February 9, 2009, the Sacramento Police Department’s Sexual Assault detectives arrested 47 year-old Daniel Caldwell, the owner of Big D’s BBQ, on eight counts of Lewd and Lascivious acts with minors. Caldwell was arrested at his restaurant at 1560 Grand Avenue, located next door to Grant High School.
Detectives believe Caldwell sexually assaulted and/or inappropriately touched at least eight different female juveniles over an eight year period from 2000 to 2008. Caldwell committed these acts when the children were in his care or custody either out camping, sleeping over at his house, or while employed at his business.
