SEDGWICK COUNTY— Law enforcement authorities are investigating a rape suspect on additional child sex charges.
Just before 9p.m. Wednesday, police arrested Caleb Gaston, 21, after the Wichita/Sedgwick County Exploited and Missing Child Unit (EMCU) detectives identified a three-year-old girl as the victim in a child sex crime that occurred at the Downtown YMCA, 402 N. Market Street in Wichita, according to officer Charley Davidson.
He was arrested in the 1400 Block of east Cresthill in Derby and booked into the Sedgwick County Adult Detention Facility on one count of Aggravated Indecent Liberties with a Child.
Gaston was arrested last week in a separate alleged child sex abuse case involving a four-year-old girl. On Tuesday, he was released on bail.
The latest case will be presented to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office, according to Davidson.
SEDGWICK COUNTY— Law enforcement authorities are investigating a rape suspect on additional charges.
Caleb Gaston charged with the rape of a 4-year-old girl while working at the Downtown Wichita YMCA bonded out of jail earlier this week. He is back in jail.
Just before 9p.m. Wednesday, police booked Gaston on requested charges of indecent liberties with a child, according to the Sedgwick County Jail booking report.
Police have not released additional details on Wednesday’s arrest.
The Greater Wichita YMCA did report they will begin daily sex offender registry checks. Prior to working for the YMCA, Gaston was fired from a church preschool last year after a complaint about inappropriate touching. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment concluded the allegation was not substantiated.
