REDLANDS (CBS) — A Redlands man is in custody for allegedly abducting and molesting a young girl.
Terence Giberson, 52, was arrested at his apartment in the 900 block of Pine Avenue after another girl in the complex saw the 4-year-old girl inside the unit. The victim was naked, screaming for her mother and banging on the window to draw attention, according to witness reports.
The girl outside found the victim’s parents, who then ran to the apartment to allegedly find their daughter naked and Giberson naked.
The suspect then hid in a room until police persuaded him to come out about 30 minutes later.
The girl did not suffer physical injuries, according to police.
Giberson faces child molestation and kidnapping charges.
Neighbors said Giberson has lived in the apartment complex for about three years with his wife and adult son. They also said he’s a grandfather.
The suspect has not had any problems with his neighbor up until now, except for yelling at kids to keep quiet because he works a night shift.
