TX: Man Accused Of Stabbing Baby Investigated For Sex With Student

October 23, 2009

Anthony Gilbert, the 37-year-old Sugar Land resident accused of stabbing a week-old baby, has also been accused of having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old Terry High School student. Gilbert is a teacher at the school.

Following an investigation by the Rosenberg Police Department, a warrant was issued for Gilbert this week for sexual assault of a child, with a bond set at $100,000.

Gilbert was involved in a standoff with Sugar Land SWAT officers earlier today. Police were called around 9 a.m. when a woman came to Sugar Land Methodist with a week-old baby with stab wounds to the neck and chest. She told police her husband, Gilbert, held her and the baby hostage overnight in their apartment in the 15700 block of Lexington.

The baby was flown by Life Flight to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he was last reported in critical but stable condition.

SWAT units went to the apartment, and were unable to get Gilbert to come to the door. A stand-off ensued, which was ended shortly after noon when police entered the apartment after throwing gas canisters inside. Police say Gilbert was found with life-threatening self-inflicted stab wounds, and was taken by Life Flight to Memorial Hermann Hospital in critical condition.
