Rape Charges: Timothy Gilbert, 18, Accused of Abuse, Burglary, Kidnapping In Violent Spree

Categories: Crime

Meanwhile, the Post-Dispatch says Gilbert is also a suspect in similar break-in nearby on Walsh Street the day before, in which a man broke into a home and also sexually assaulted a woman at knifepoint.

Both cases, the paper says, involved an unlocked rear door.

All of this is on top of his January charges -- in which he is accused of breaking into a Holly Hills Avenue home on the first day of the new year. The married couple that lives there woke up that day and found their wedding bands and an engagement ring missing, the Circuit Attorney's Office says.

The following day, according to a probable cause statement, surveillance cameras recorded Gilbert selling one of the rings, which the couple later identified as their property.

Gilbert, police say, eventually admitted that he had entered their home and taken their jewelry.

Here are the two probable cause statements from the Circuit Attorney's Office.

Probable Cause - Timothy Gilbert

Timothy Gilbert - Burglary
