The affidavit states a detective was watching surveillance video while following up on the January 29 incident. The detective observed Gaston working in the Kid Zone from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Gaston was seen picking up the 3-year-old girl, who appeared to be crying, and carried her to the back part of the child area, away from another staff member. Caleb could be seen looking over his shoulder.

The document says video showed Gaston fondling the girl twice.

The girl ran to a female staff member and remained with her and another female staff member until her 22-year-old mother arrived. The child was upset and crying for the remainder of her time at the YMCA.
