Palm Coast, FL – A Palm Coast resident is arrested in New Jersey and extradited back to Flagler with three active warrants regarding child rape charges.
36-year-old Gabriel Pardo is accused by Flagler County Sheriff’s Office of raping two of his step-daughters over the course of several years and molesting one of their friends.
According to his arrest report, the rapes involving one of the step-daughters began when she was 9 years old and continued until she was 15. The other step-daughter was 8 years old when it first happened and it continued until she was 14.
The rape involving their friend happened back in February, according to FCSO. She was sleeping over at the step-daughters’ house and, when the children went to sleep, Pardo pulled down her sweatpants and began to molest her for close to 10 minutes.
She told FCSO’s Child Protection Team that she froze and did not know what to do.
Pardo was arrested by Essex County Sheriff’s Office in New Jersey after he was found to have three active warrants for his arrest in Flagler. He was booked into the Flagler County Jail last Saturday (August 11th).
He’s currently being held on $225,000 bond with three charges of raping a child older than 12 but younger than 18.
