Miguel RoblesSALINAS, CA – A disabled grandfather has been arrested after he allegedly assaulted the man accused of molesting his granddaughter.

On Father’s Day, police arrived at a home where a a child had been sexually assaulted to find the man accused of committing sex acts on a child, 58-year-old Arturo Ibarra, suffering from severe facial injuries. His injuries were so severe he had to be airlifted to the hospital.

According to the reports, the person responsible for causing Ibarra’s injuries was the grandfather of the girl Ibarra has been accused of molesting. After learning what Ibarra had done, and before deputies had arrived at the home, Miguel Robles decided Ibarra’s face needed to be re-arranged a bit.

The 53-year-old had left the home before police arrived, but was later interviewed and arrested. He admitted he’d hit Ibarra in the face  after learning what he had done to his granddaughter. Ibarra has not been arrested at this time because he is still at the hospital in critical condition.

  • Set him free and drop the charges!

  • FrikkenFrak

    I’d cheerfully take an assault charge for the opportunity to beat senseless anyone who molested one of my kids.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Congrats on the natural twenty, Miguel.

  • Go grandpa!

  • In truth the guy in the hospital is only accused of this crime… grandpa should allowed to be bonded out and wait… if the creep is found guilty charges should be dropped against grandpa.

  • the pigs take too fucking long.

  • I would have done the same thing. Just drop the charges on gramps.

  • MyHovercraftIsFullofEels

    Salinas. There is a state prison there.

  • brandi

    So… wasn’t there another story like this, oh it was months ago, but the father in that one had NO charges, and rightfully so. how can anyone seriously charge this man? It’ll never hold up in court.

  • sprevilgenius

    This man deserves a medal. Not prison time.

  • newstarshipsmell

    He killed the suspect while catching him in the act and it was an unintentional killing. It happened on his property and he promptly reported the incident, summoning police and paramedics – fortunately, the suspect was declared dead at the scene, IIRC. He was remorseful about it later, as well.

    This guy found out after the abuse, and then proceeded to put the beat down on him. Not that I’m judging, mind you. This also took place in California, while the other incident happened in Texas – I’m not sure if the difference in states is particularly relevant to the matter, though.

    ETA: Also, it doesn’t say he’s been charged yet, just arrested… ?

  • And this is wrong how?

  • Yes I agree the charges need to be dropped. The man was just defending an innocent child!

  • “His injuries were so severe he had to be airlifted to the hospital.” Why even bother?

  • newstarshipsmell

    The best part is, regardless of what happens with gramps, asshole kiddy diddler in the hospital has a prompt arrest to look forward to while he’s painfully recovering. FTW. If it’d been me, I would’ve made sure his crotch was in immense pain as well as his face, though.

  • Texas Ranger

    I got no problem with any of this…..nice and neat. problem solved.

  • Yay grandpa!!!!!!!

  • Texas Ranger

    Damn right…he may have been born an Arturo…but he’d have gone to the hospital as a Senorita de Ibarra.

  • Cheeka_KC

    Good. The grampa should get a medal, not arrested.

  • newstarshipsmell

    He’d be sporting a poor replica of an echidna penis when I was through with him.

  • Good for grandpa!! I think they should let family members “take care of” those pervs!! They get sent to prison & let out sooner than people that do lesser crimes! Personally, I think child molesters & rapist should get the death penalty! It’s been proven they can’t be rehabilitated. Yuck!!!

  • Texas Ranger

    Sounds horrendous….whatever the heck that is.

  • 18th40

    Where’s Athena when you need her ? I’m sure she can quote the relevant statutes for both states, probably in different languages.

  • Texas Ranger

    Or put enough bullshit big words in the comment to make you think so anyway.


    *hedging my bets*

  • newstarshipsmell
  • Cassy_Again

    Has anyone set up a defense fund for him yet?

  • Texas Ranger

    Just send me a check for whatever amount you like, I will forward said monies to him in a timely fashion. Thanks!

  • You can do that in Texas

  • yeah, he’s so disabled. he trusts the gov’t to pay him, why won’t he trust the gov’t to punish the ALLEGED offender?

  • So why was he arrested?

  • WarriorArtemis

    I hope he doesn’t get charged…the molester needs to be chemically castrated however.

  • Buffettgirl

    Go Grandpa Gadget Go!

  • birdynumnums

    Free Grandpa!

  • Good on him.

  • Athena

    Fuck you both. Haters be hatin’. Goddamn. 😛

  • Gee

    Unfortunately he will be charged with assault…. Tarsh is right! there is big difference in the other article catching in the act and Kicking the shit out of the guy after the fact. I still give gramps a big “way to go” pat on the back for his actions.

  • Let him out.

  • 18th40

    Uh oh. I’ve heard she has an army of Ninjas she dispatches in situations like these. Probably on their way now. Too bad Tex, I liked you.

  • Athena

    Not necessarily. This would be a tough conviction for a California prosecutor. I’ll be surprised if they bother.

    But, yeah, you and Tarsh are right. In the act is one thing. Even shortly afterward provides much less coverage.

  • brandi

    I can always count on u to do the dirty work can’t I?

  • brandi

    Yes, only arrested. That’s what I meant, he hasn’t been charged, surely they wouldn’t. But they could charge with assault like GEE said. I’m just thinking maybe it wouldn’t actually hold up in court.

  • IntelligentVirtue

    Agreed. Gramps act will more than likely be instrumental in her healing process. I read a few articles many years ago that specifically addressed some of the feelings victims encounter including helpless & guilty. In this case hopefully some of the helplessness will be alleviated by knowing that she had her family’s protection. I hope & pray that Grandpa isn’t punished but considering his “disposition” even if he was I’m sure he’ll do it willingly.

  • brandi

    Oh she’s there… Right on time as always, gotta love that politically correct woman…

  • brandi

    Guess it all depends on the judge. If I were judge, there’d be no doubt he’s getting off Scott free…. But assault is assault, and like you said he found out after the abuse happened… Would love to see the update on this soon.

  • Texas Ranger

    Cool! I like NInjas…with lot’s of cheese and chili and jalapenos… wait…or is that nachos…those ain’t the same are they?

  • newstarshipsmell

    But see? I didn’t link to it to this time. I’m learning about these things called “tact” and “restraint.”

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    Sometimes, a simple “thank you” isn’t enough.

  • 18th40

    Hater ? Oh come now kind lady, I was merely expressing my admiration for your Spock like knowledge of all things legal. Truly, I don’t hate anything……well I came really close with that big fucking singing purple dinosaur and his big fucking purple singing song….but other than that, moi ? Never.

  • If anyone touched my child I would do the same…this man is a hero!

  • Athena

    I upvoted you three fucking times. One from my phone when I didn’t realize I wasn’t logged in, one from my laptop before I realized I wasn’t logged in, then again as myself to undo the down vote I have you earlier.

    All is right again, mon cheri.

  • Helen Payne


  • newstarshipsmell

    Before some idiot jumps down your throat, I’d like to politely learn you the right way to spell “scot-free” – but don’t fret, even I, as perfect as I am (and I am perfect) didn’t know how to spell this word properly, and indeed would have misspelled it the same as yourself, but I wasn’t sure at the time, and looked it up. (Because I’m perfect like that.)

    Unless, of course, you were referring to filmmakers Ridley & Tony Scott’s production company, Max Roach’s album, or Mister Miracle from the DC Universe, in which case, carry on.

  • Geniva Diane

    My son was a victim of sexual assault when he was just 2, I shot the S.O.B that hurt my baby boy, I shot his family jewels, I do it again if I had too…Children are defenseless, fragile little souls, they have no chance against an adult that’s taking away a part of their little lives they will never get back. I’ll will do whatever I have to, to protect my babies, just a shame some adults don’t…

  • 18th40

    Is your employer aware that your ‘log in’ skill set is at best questionable ?

    There’s probably a seminar for that somewhere.

  • Pyncky

    Seriously. If there is one I want to know.

  • Athena

    My “employer”? Would you be referring to Morbid, or my pimp?

    Come now, darlin’, you know I don’t make either one of them any money logged in

  • yadda yadda

    Good for the grandpa. Why wait for the *system* to take care of the molester.

  • 18th40

    Sorry coach, I threw my best at her, full heat, everything. And she just tattooed that motherfucker clear down main street directly into the harbour.

  • Heather4877

    Thanks. Now I have to look it up myself.

  • mean birch

    Allegedly. Come on people! btw-

    I hate kiddy pervs as much as the rest of us.

  • wtf. the pigs should arrest themselves for being complete douchenozzles

  • sugarpie

    Oh grampa! You are my hero! But you really should have killed him. You only get about 17 years for that you know. At 58, this probably isn’t his first kid rodeo.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    The only mistake Grandpa made was that he disfigured the wrong head–he should have given Ibarra severe groin injuries instead of severe facial injuries.

  • kimbev69

    ok California needs to be more like texas .. this guy should be given a reward and a parade in his honor

  • Evan

    dude die that you shot? out of curiosity!

  • Evan

    i’d like more details about what gramps did to this guy. did he put 20 holes in his face with a butter knife? Did he cut off the dudes lips, eye lids and nose? Or did he just punch the shit out of him? How many teeth were left? C’mon if gramps is gunna get in trouble over this AT LEAST LET US HEAR THE GORY DETAILS OF ITS FACE!

  • Evan

    and tell me more about gramps disability! is his disability that he has a chainsaw attached to his arm or that he has no legs or what?

  • Buffettgirl


  • Buffettgirl

    I think I’m traumatized for life now… where’s my wooby and my Mommy?

  • esmerald 2006

    Kill them all child molesters. Get rid of the putrefact trash they are.

  • esmerald 2006

    Yeah I remember that one.

  • Brent Williams

    I used to manage a retail store in Salinas. Employees described the violence there daily. Extreme violence. I would not fuck with any resident of that town, Ibarra got off easy it seems.

  • LynneVicious

    Cops just should have looked the other way. Seriously.

  • brandi

    Which ever one makes me right, that’s the one I’m referring… lmao

  • Annie Geturgun

    There would be a lot less of this shit going on if they would let the family have a few minutes with these people before the cops show up, without fear of getting charges for it.

  • Kev

    This story and the links you posted are two separate unrelated stories.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Really, you don’t say? It was in reply to @jag1910:disqus’s comment wasn’t there another story like this, oh it was months ago, but the father in that one had NO charges, and rightfully so. how can anyone seriously charge this man? Don’t worry, here’s your prize, you’ve earned it:

  • JGo555

    Hopefully the brain damage the perv gets it’s the part where he is attracted to kids. I hope he wakes up attracted to potatoes.

  • dash

    Nasty mouth you have there princess….

  • newstarshipsmell

    Why on earth would you wish that misfortune upon potatoes? What have they ever done to you?

  • angie

    BRAVO!!! BRAVO!!! BRAVO!!! I applaud this grandfather!!! And I hope he gets easily out of jail, the one who should rot in jail is the man who had his face rearranged!!!

  • dbblack

    Yeah, I really hope the guy can get off on a temporary insanity plea, i see no reason why beating a rapist should be a problem, especially a child rapist

  • Melissa Stopka

    If my father were alive he would’ve done the same fucking thing, good for him. If people beat the fuck out of perverts like this more often, maybe, just maybe this kinda shit wouldn’t happen as often.

  • Palo Donatello

    I come from a good Sicilian family and was raised in a very close net Italian community in the Northeast. As an Italian man, I was raised from birth to protect ladies and children until death if need be. No man in our Italian community would have wasted the time and effort it would take to beat such trash to death. You just put them down, go back to your Chicken Pica ta and your dinner and Italian flat bread is still warm. Problem solved and your wife is not 10 shades of pissed because you did not ruin the dinner she took the time to prepare. You must think all facets of end result that are based on one’s actions actions completely though. We Italians, we Wana Maka everybody the happy. Gratis !!
