Man arrested for molesting 3 young girls

ORANGE, Calif. Santa Ana police were called to a church in Orange after a 13-year-old girl told a counselor that Gary Gruber had been molesting her for the last three years.

Gruber was booked for investigation of lewd and sexual acts with a child under 14 and threats of retaliation.

Investigators believe the girl's 8-year-old and 5-year-old sisters were also victims. Gruber often babysat the children.

Gruber met the girls' father in jail about five years ago and they had remained friends after release.
