MARKHAM | A Cook County judge on Tuesday set bond at $150,000* for a former Lansing resident who faces two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse related to a now-defunct at-home child day care.

Dave Lukowski, 63, who now lives in Grant Park in Kankakee County, made his initial court appearance at the 6th District Cook County Circuit Courthouse on the charges.

Judge William Boyd set the bond, and scheduled a preliminary hearing for Lukowski for April 7, according to a spokesman for the Cook County state’s attorney’s office.

In a prepared statement, Lansing police said Lukowski’s arrest this week was for incidents that occurred in the early 1990s at a former in-home child day care facility in the 17100 block of Oakwood Avenue.

That was Lukowski’s home at the time, but Lansing police said he no longer lives at the house.

Lansing police Lt. Steve Roberts said Lukowski’s acts were not a continued threat to the public, as the day care center in question is no longer operating. “It was an unlicensed at-home daycare that is no longer in business,” he said.

Police would not provide details about the incidents or when exactly they occurred. But in a statement, they said that people who know more information about the situation should contact the Police Department at (708) 895-7150.
