A Westminster man faces charges in the rape, beating and burning of the 21-month-old daughter of his girlfriend, Carroll County police said.

Ryan C. Gifford, 23, was arrested Sunday and charged with first- and second-degree assault and first- and second-degree child abuse. He was being held in lieu of $500,000 bond.

The child, who police said had burns and extensive abrasions on her body, was in intensive care at Johns Hopkins Hospital.



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die.

    I am a registered daycare provider and a relative of the father of the baby girl, who is seeking custody of the baby and wants to protect her. My question is: How as a mother did she find her baby bruised, bloody, and naked, in the bathroom with a naked man in the middle of the night and not realize something was going on? As a mother or just someone who loves a child, how would you then just disregard all of that and then put your child back to bed? How do you dress your child and not see second-degree burn marks? How is that possible? And how is it possible that she is not charged with something? Really!!!!!!!!! I want everyone to question that! Read the articles of how she found her baby and then put her back to bed and make your own judgement, it’s obvious! The thing is something has to be done about this! Make complaints, post it on facebook, call the news, the courthouse, the police. Someone needs to protect the poor 21 month old baby! How would you feel if this was your baby?! PLEASE HELP!
