APPLE VALLEY (AP) —  San Bernardino County prosecutors have filed a felony rape charge against a registered sex offender suspected of raping a woman in her own vehicle at gunpoint as her toddler slept in the back seat.

The Victorville Daily Press reports Elbert Ganter had a video arraignment on Tuesday from West Valley Detention Center.

Ganter was arrested late Thursday night at his home in Apple Valley.

The Daily Press says officials linked Ganter to the Feb. 11 attack in a Kmart parking lot from evidence gathered at the scene.

The newspaper says the woman was sitting in her vehicle with her sleeping child waiting for her husband and other children to return from Kmart when Ganter approached.
