    Westminster man faces child abuse charges
    Documents: Girl treated for injuries, examined for possible sexual abuse

    An examination of the child at Carroll Hospital Center revealed fresh injuries to the child, including a swollen lip, dried and fresh blood in both ear canals and bruises on her face, according to court documents in the case.

    Neither Gifford nor the child's mother could explain the injuries during an initial interview with police, according to the documents.
    According to the documents, the mother said Gifford had been drinking heavily Friday evening leading up to the discovery of the injuries.
    The child and the mother spent the night at Gifford's apartment, and the mother told police there were no injuries on the child when she went to sleep that night, according to court documents.

    Man Accused Of Abusing & Burning Toddler

    The mother tells police that she put her baby girl down to go to sleep at 10:30 p.m. in Gifford's bed. Then the couple walked to get alcohol. Police say Gifford drank a half gallon of white wine and became intoxicated before the couple went to sleep.

    Court documents say the mother woke up to find Gifford locked in the bathroom with the little girl with the shower on. After loud knocking and screaming, he let her in. She says Gifford and the baby were both naked.

    He said that the baby had "blood on her ears... [so he] gave her a shower" and he told the mother that "the baby was fussy and she had fallen down" to explain cuts, blood, swelling and bruises all over her body.

    Can someone please tell me what these men find sexually attractive about a baby????? I don't understand. Look at magazines...women get breast implants and workout to make there body appear toned and curvy because this is what men are suppose to find attractive. Why is it that all of a sudden it seems so many men, or actually I should call them monsters, are finding babies attractive and raping them....it MAKES NO SENSE!!!!

    "dried and fresh blood"

    So does that mean something has happened in the past to this poor child as well? I wonder how old the dried blood was.

    And the baby had been put to bed in the boyfriend's bed. I don't want to think that mom went to sleep in the same bed, and that is where the assault of this precious little one occurred right next to her.

    Why would you drink so much that you would sleep through your child's cries? Sounds like there's all kinds of problems in this family.

    I'm just floored.

    Westminster man accused of child sex abuse
    Police say he raped, burned girlfriend&#8217;s toddler; child released from hospital


    A Westminster man is accused of raping, beating and burning the 21-month-old daughter of his girlfriend while the mother slept nearby, according to charging documents filed in Carroll County.

    Ryan Chad Gifford, 23, was arrested Sunday and charged with first- and second-degree assault and first- and second-degree child abuse after the girl's mother took her to a hospital for treatment of burns, a swollen face and extensive abrasions.

    Gifford was being held at the Caroll County Detention Center in lieu of $500,000 bond after a bail review hearing Monday. If found guilty of the charges, he could face up to 75 years in prison.

    The child was released Wednesday after treatment in the pediatric intensive-care unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, a spokeswoman there said

    Police who went to the Westminster hospital to look into a report of child abuse secured a warrant to search Gifford's home. There they found a bloody T-shirt belonging to Gifford that had some of the child's blond hair attached, accord to the report.

    "Blood was found on his bed, baby pack-and-play, baby's socks, and toilet seat," Cpl. William Burdt wrote in the report. "I told Gifford what we had found in his room and he stated, &#8216;Must have been her blood &#8212; I don't remember anything.' "


    All this in his bed where the baby was put to sleep, in his room. Where was the mother sleeping?

    More from the article. This is horrifying:

    The woman told police she dried the girl, dressed her, put her to bed and went back to sleep. Yelton said she checked on the child about 8 a.m. and returned to bed. When she checked her again at 11 a.m., she noticed the baby's face was swollen. It was then that she took her to the hospital.

    Once there, doctors discovered "multiple fresh injuries," the report said, including a swollen, cut upper lip, bruising on both cheeks, "random bruises and abrasions throughout her body," and marks on her chest and buttocks. Her right foot and left calf had been burned, and the big toe on her left foot had a "crush injury." In addition, she showed evidence of having been both raped and sodomized, the report said.

    "She's a little waiflike thing, a pretty little girl," Teeter said Tuesday.
