VICTORVILLE – A reported car burglary that turned out to only be a verbal altercation between two men led to the arrest of a suspected child molester authorities said. On Tuesday, May 2, 2017, at around 2:45 p.m. deputies from the Victorville station responded to the Kaiser Permanente located on Park Avenue to find the two men arguing.
After talking with the men they learned that one of them had an outstanding arrest warrant. The 32-year-old man identified as Nicholas Gary Giles, also known as Nicholas Gary Burstein of Victorville had an arrest warrant following a February 21, 2017, report and investigation into the continued sexual abuse of a child between 2012 and 2013.
Giles was booked into the High Desert Detention Center for continued Sexual Abuse of a Child, lewd and lascivious acts with a child under age 14, and lewd and lascivious acts with a child. Giles is being held in lieu of $1 million bail. He is scheduled to appear at the Victorville Superior Court on Thursday afternoon.
