Paedo YMCA employee raped 4-year-old girl

Eyewitness News has learned a YMCA employee charged with raping a four-year-old girl was fired from Plymouth Learning Center in October of 2017 for inappropriate touching.


Caleb Gaston is currently being held in the Sedgwick County jail on a $100,000 bond.
Friday afternoon, Sen. Min. Don Olsen from Plymouth Congregational Church, which houses Plymouth Learning Center, issued the following statement regarding the incident.
"Caleb Gaston was an employee at Plymouth Learning Center for several months in 2017. Plymouth Learning Center does complete background checks through the State of Kansas and in compliance with KDHE protocol. Employment references are contacted and were done so for this individual. Additionally, Plymouth Learning Center has a policy that two teachers are in classrooms with children at all times. We also have video cameras in the classrooms. Caleb Gaston's employment was terminated on 10-9-17 due to one complaint of inappropriate touching. The discharge was immediate and PLC notified KDHE and WPD investigated."
Olsen said Gaston was employed part-time at Plymouth Learning Center and the East YMCA. He was offered full-time employment at the learning center in April.
"We are saddened by the entire situation, especially for the victim at the YMCA. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family," Olsen concluded.
Scibbles and Giggles confirmed Gaston worked at its Derby daycare location for six to eight weeks in the beginning of 2017.
Owner Misti Stephen said no complaints were made against Gaston while he worked there. She said his background check was clear and his references checked out - including the YMCA where worked directly before.
Stephen said she has called Wichita police for more information regarding the case against Gaston. She encourages any with parents who have kids enrolled at Scribbles and Giggles to call if they have questions.
Update 10 p.m.
The Greater Wichita YMCA confirms 21-year-old Caleb Gaston, accused of raping a four-year-old girl at the downtown YMCA, had worked in the Kid Zone at the downtown and east Wichita YMCA locations.
The YMCA says it is in the process of identifying and notifying families of any children who may have had contact with Gaston.
Update 9:30 p.m.
Multiple people confirm to Eyewitness Thursday night that Gaston worked in the Kid Zone at the downtown YMCA, an area where parents drop off their children while they work out.
Gaston is accused of raping a four-year-old girl at the facility. The incident is reported to have happened on Monday (Jan. 29), police say.
The YMCA says it's launched an internal investigation, but has not said how or where this happened.
The organization says it is fully cooperating with Wichita police.
Looking into the case, Eyewitness News Thursday evening sat down with personal protection expert Joe Schillaci.
Schillaci knows from years in law enforcement how difficult it can be to talk to a young child about abuse.
"The most important thing a parent can do is pay attention to what you already know," Schillaci says. "You know your child."
For parents, Schillaci recommends looking for anything out of the ordinary.
"Just observe (and) as you are observing, look for signs of what's going on," he says. "Are there any signs of trauma? Not just emotional signs, but obvious physical signs as well."
When talking to a younger child, Schillaci says you should avoid questions that may lead them in a certain direction, but to be vigilant if you suspect anything happened.
"If your child tells you that something inappropriate happened, you really need to alert the authorities...," he says.
