Last night, police charged 19-year-old Christina Regusters of the 6200 block of Walton Avenue with kidnapping, criminal conspiracy, rape, aggravated assault, and related offenses in connection with the January abduction of a 5-year-old girl from a West Philadelphia school.
According to investigators, Regusters worked at the after school daycare of the elementary school where the girl was abducted. They also say she had contact with the little girl prior to the abduction. However, the sort of contact has not been revealed by police.
Police have not yet confirmed whether Regusters had any previous ties to the victim’s family.
Investigators have said the victim went through an “unspeakable experience” during her captivity. Her grandfather said she was sexually assaulted several times.
Meanwhile, Regusters was taken into custody yesterday afternoon for questioning along with three others, who have since then been released.
