A man wanted in Oklahoma County on a warrant for first degree rape has been taken into custody.

The Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office confirms that Anthony Gibson, 52, was arrested on a count of first degree rape of a victim under the age of 14. Gibson was arrested by the OCSO Warrant Team with help from the Oklahoma City Police Department Gang Unit.

The warrant was issued Jan. 24. Court documents show that an 8-year-old girl told a school friend that Gibson had inappropriately touched her. The friend then notified her mother, who in turn called the girls' school. Police were then called to investigate.

Gibson reportedly would perform odd jobs for the girl's family.
