When the girl tried to walk out of the apartment after the assault, Murray said Gibson grabbed her and confined her to the bedroom of his apartment when she wanted to leave.
After the assault, Murray said Gibson made comments of a threatening nature toward the family of the girl and said Gibson, if released from Coos County jail, would pose a significant threat to the community.
Gibson's arrest was made after an investigation by the Whitefield Police Department with assistance from the Child Advocacy Center of Coos County.
A week before the arrest for sexual assault, Gibson was arrested by Whitefield police on charges of simple assault.
