Joshua Bibby, a 30-year-old Missouri man (pictured above), is under arrest after what his girlfriend allegedly caught him doing to her 6-year-old daughter on camera.
The Kansas City Star reports that the unidentified woman grew suspicious of her boyfriend after something she saw, and something that her daughter said.
It all started when the woman allegedly saw Joshua Bibby coming out of her daughter’s room “several times” while the little girl was sleeping.
A separate report from Fox 2 Now adds that the little girl told her mother she awoke one night to find Bibby in her room with his hands down her pants.
Taken together, the woman decided to install a camera inside one of her child’s toys so that it was facing the bed.
Court documents indicate that the camera was installed and positioned on a Saturday, and that shortly after midnight, she told Bibby that she would be going to the store with one of her friends.
At this point, she left the house, but had the camera recording footage that was then fed to her smartphone.
Shortly after leaving the house, she and her friend witnessed Joshua Bibby enter the room, pull down the girl’s pants, and begin taking pictures of her naked.
He then allegedly masturbated, the KC Star notes. By that point, the mom had already called police, who showed up at the house shortly thereafter and arrested Bibby, who is now in jail being held on a $200,000 bond.
He provided no statement to the police at the time of his arrest, reports state.
Many commenters have been understandably outraged at what Bibby was allegedly caught on camera doing, and what he has been accused of doing to the little girl in the past. But some raised questions about the mother as well.
“So if this woman suspected him of such a thing, then why in God’s name would she leave her little girl alone with this sicko?” asked John Aguilar. “Yeah he took the bait, but at what price? My thoughts are with this poor child that had to be used to catch this creep. I hope he rots in jail forever, or even better, gets his a** shanked for what he did.”
Facebooker Margaret Wagner agreed.
“SOME WOMEN ARE JUST PLAIN STUPID WHY THE H*** WOULD YOU NOT BELIEVE YOUR DAUGHTER WHEN SHE SAID IT HAPPENED ONCE AND ALLOW IT TO HAPPEN AGAIN!! I SHOULD BEAT SOME D*** SENSE INTO YOUR DUMB A** HEAD!!!!”
What do you think about this case, readers? Should the Mom be questioned for essentially “baiting” a child predator with her own daughter? What should happen to Joshua Bibby, if convicted?
