A grand jury indicted a man and woman on rape, abuse and assault charges on Sept. 25 following September arrests.

The two were arrested on charges involving a child after medical staff at a doctor's office, Department of Community Based Services and law enforcement were told by a toddler's family member that the child had facial bruising, bruising to their legs and was bleeding from their private area on June 17.

Terry Gordon, 36, Willis Court, was the only person "to have opportunity to rape the (child)," according to a citation. The child was bleeding for five days while in medical care, the citation states.

The child told investigators Gordon was the one who harmed them and demonstrated to police that he "put his hands like this," as the child grabbed their throat in a strangulation motion, the citation states. The child also said Gordon was the one who caused the bleeding.

Teresa Fish, 25, Smith Village, Richmond, had known about the injuries for at least 24 hours and hadn't sought medical attention, according to a second citation. She was also deceptive with police and medical personnel about how the child was injured.

Fish lied to her family about the injuries and didn't want to create suspicion about Gordon, who is Fish's first cousin and boyfriend, according to the second citation.

Fish also was aware that Gordon has been accused of child molestation in the past and suspected him of abusing the child as well, but continued to allow him to be around the child, the second citation states.

When officers went to Fish's home, "the apartment was in deplorable conditions: dried vomit on the stairs, numerous cat feces/urine piles throughout, trash bags filled with trash piled in the kitchen, insect activity to the degree it was almost a hazard for officials to be in the apartment," the second citation states. Police also found a marijuana grinder and two marijuana pipes.

Gordon is charged with first-degree rape (victim younger than 12), two counts of second-degree assault, first-degree criminal abuse and tampering with physical evidence. Fish is charged with facilitation of first-degree rape (victim younger than 12), three counts of first-degree criminal abuse and tampering with physical evidence.

An indictment does not indicate guilt, only that grand jurors believe the state has enough evidence to proceed with prosecution.
