Man accused of molesting girls at garage sales

PHOENIX - A Phoenix man is behind bars, accused of sexually abusing young girls.

Nevertheless it is where he found his victims at garage sales that is really disturbing. We know of two attacks, both in central Phoenix between 7th and 16th Streets and between Van Buren and McDowell.

Phoenix police fear there could be more victims. Neighbors witnessed when police arrested the man but they had no idea what kind of trouble he was in.

Charles Schibilla is accused of fondling three girls ages 9, 11, and 13. He is also a level three registered sex offender, the highest risk to the community.

Police say Schibilla went to two different garage sales in the central Phoenix area on June 21 and August 16.

Pretending to be looking for a shirt for his daughter, the 57-year-old allegedly asked the victims to model the shirts before fondling their breasts. The victims told their parents and they called police.

Neighbors say that Schibilla had been living at his residence for about two years and now they hope he does not return.

Charles Schibilla is charged with five counts of child abuse.
